The skyline in Munich posters

With the Alps within easy driving distance, Munich has one of the most dramatic backdrops nature could offer. The city's most famous landmark is currently the Frauenkirche, or Church of Our Lady, with its twin towers rising 109 meters into the sky. It sports two onion-shaped towers of identical height. Munich Germany Skyline is a set of Munich posters where this is prominently displayed. Even though the building has gone through various incarnations throughout the decades, it was originally destined as a late Gothic church that had a Baroque interior for a while, which was later removed. The church was destroyed in the war and then rebuilt, making it an even more meaningful and historic sight, perfect as subject for Munich posters.
