    Frauenkirche, Munich

    The foundation stone was laid by Duke Sigismund in 1468. The building measures 109 meters (358ft) high and is 40 meters (131ft) wide. Its distinctive domes, which were built in 1525 would serve as a model for many of Bavaria's towers.

    The Building
    The church is huge but simple. Much of the original gothic interior has been destroyed or removed partially by contra-reformists. In the crypt, you will find the tombs of the Wittelsbach family, where many dukes and bisshops are buried.
    One of the most interesting things inside the church is the memorial grave in black marble of Prince Elector Kurfürst Maximilian I.

    Footprint of the Devil
    Also inside the church is the 'footprint of the devil'. According to the legend, the architect of the Frauenkirche, Jörg von Halsbach, promised the devil you could not see a window from the inside of the church. In return, the devil would help him build the Frauenkirche.turkeyarena.com

    After he completed the building, the architect led the devil to the middle of the church from where you could not see a single window, although all churchgoers would sit in an area where a lot of light came through the windows. The devil would have stamped his foot with so much rage that his footprint was visible in the stone floor.
