St. Peter's Church – the oldest Munich cathedral. It was built on the Petersbergl hill in the very center of Munich in the 11th century on the site of an old wooden church. In 1181, by order of Otto I Wittelsbach, the Romanesque church was expanded. Otto von Frizing, bishop, consecrated it. A century later, the old church was demolished, a new one was built and consecrated in 1284. At the beginning of the 14th century, there was a fire and St. Peter's Church was badly damaged. It was restored in the Gothic style. The church changed over time, and its design also changed: the church was decorated in the Rococo, Gothic, Baroque and other styles, according to the time. During the Second World War, the church was seriously damaged. The restoration work continued until 2000.
