St. Johann Nepomuk Church, better known as Asamkirche is a church in Munich, built by the Asambrothers.

They designed the church as confession church for the youth. So the small churchs has got seven confessionals with allegorical scenes. Best example of Baroque roccoco. You can see legs and arms of cherubs jutting out of the ceiling fresco. Gilded with gold are the ornate designs.

The Asam brothers, great pioneering artists of the Rococo period, belong to the most important church architects of the German late Baroque, they have also built many other churches in Bavaria. With just 12 rows of pews, Asamkirche is one of Munich's smallest but certainly one of its most opulent. The property is just 22 to 8 meter. The grace and detail of the amazing craftsmanship is simply breathtaking and it was definitely a wonderful challenge to capture the magnificent beauty of this church.
