Directions to Theatinerkirche
The Theatinerkirche (Theatine church) or St. Cajetan Church is located in the city center, just opposite to the Feldherrnhalle.
This church has been built from 1633 to 1690 and has been designed in italian baroque style. The church was donated to the Italian Order of the Theatines by Henriette Adelaide of Savoy who was the wife of the elector Ferdinand Maria. The donation was a sign of gratitude for the birth of the long-awaited heir to the throne Prince Max Emanuel.
Because of its yellow color and mediterranean style the Theatinerkirche has become a popular symbol of Munich and influenced the baroque architure in Bavaria very much.
The white stucco works that are dominating the interior of Theatinerkirche are giving contrast to the the deep black pulpit.
It is the final resting place for several members of the House of Wittelsbach, amongst those the donator Ferdinand Maria and his wife Henriette Adelaide of Savoy, as well as their son Max Emanuel, the elector Karl Theodor, the Emperor Karl VII, King Max I and King Otto of Greece, as well as Prince Regent Luitpold.
