Oktoberfest 2009: Guide to Munich Frauenkirche

The Frauenkirche [Church of Our Lady] is Munich's cathedral. It is a late Gothic brickwork edifice. The (Catholic) church can hold 20,000 people standing, which is astonishing when you think that the city's population at the time it was being built in the late 15th century was only about 13,000. Tip: there are plenty of Bavarian inns near the cathedral, like the Andechser or the Augustiner, where you can eat excellent roast pork and schnitzel.
