1935 Photo postcard Munich Frauenkirche mailed 23 March from Rosenheim
Lot 1625
Munich Frauenkirche
The Frauenkirche is an imposing brick edifice 320 feet long, 120 feet broad, and 110 feet high. The nave and aisles (of equal height), ambulatory, and unusually lofty side-chapels (between the buttresses, which are on the inside), were erected by Jorg Ganghofer in 1468-88 on the site of an earlier church. The two towers, 329 feet high, covered after 1512 with round caps of green copper, are a distinctive feature of Miinchen. Since the creation of the archbishopric of Munchen and Freising in 1817, the Frauenkirche has been the metropolitan church of Bavaria.
Published by A. Lengauer, Munchen.
