“Malz und Hopfen: die besten Magentropfen.”
(Malt and hops: the best stomach drops.)

The Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) is one of Munich’s most popular landmarks. Located in the old city not far from the central Marienplatz, its two towers, topped with their onion-shaped copper domes, are among the defining images of the city’s skyline. Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Munich Child (Münchner Kindl) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.

Price Range: $400-$550
