Photo Challenge – Look Up, Look Down: Bavarian Church Steeples

I’ve been looking up, up, up all the way! My neck will never be quite the same again… but it’s a price well worth paying for being part of travelwithintent’s weekly photo challenge Look Up, Look Down.

So, here we have one of the imposing steeples of Munich’s emblematic Frauenkirche:

Frauenkirche - Rechter Turm

You’re probably more used to seeing it from this angle:

These are Munich's most famous landmarks - the towers of the Frauenkirche and the Mariensäule

These are Munich’s most famous landmarks – the mighty twin towers of the Frauenkirche, and the Mariensäule. It took me ages to get the column in the middle… I was nearly trampled to death by the tourist hordes in the process!

The next shot is of a church steeple located in the beautiful historic centre of the Bavarian town of Landsberg:

Landsberg Church

It seemed really tall from down here!

    Lovely photographs of the various churches throughout Bavaria. I love the architecture and colour schemes of these churches which brilliantly complement the surrounding landscape. Keep up the great work.

    Lovely photos again. It’s good to see the Frauenhkirche from a different angle. And the Landsberg steeple is beautiful, so delicate. Thanks for joining in again and for bullying others to join!

    Great shot of the Frauenkirche. Yes, I am amazed that you didn’t get trampled! I do enjoy the Marienplatz area…much as I love my remote spaces, I will make an exception for this and dive into the hordes of tourists…
