Dreifaltigkeitskirche

Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Trinity Church) is a Bavarian Baroque style church within central Munich.

The church was build based on a vision by Anna Maria Lindmayr, who foresaw that Munich would be saved from destruction at the hands of the Austrians (during the war of the Spanish succession) — but only, if the city would build a church dedicated to the holy trinity.

To act on this vision, a church, designed by Giovanni Antonio Viscardi in Bavarian Baroque style, was build from 1711-1718.
