Muenchen / Munich - St. Bonifaz

Muenchen / Munich - St. Bonifaz
Next to Koenigsplatz is St. Bonifaz Abbey, founded (and funded!) by Ludwig I, whose tomb is inside this church. To ensure the economicly stability, Ludwig bought the former Andechs abbey (see there), with it´s farmlands, brewery etc. and bestowed it to St. Bonifaz. Now Andechs is a priorate of St. Bonifaz. The whole area here was bombed during WWII and the abbey was totally destroyed. The church we see today, is a reconstruction. Outside it still has the historistic "byzantine" style of the 19th. century, inside it is airy and modern.
