Across from the Church of the Holy Spirit is another stunning clock tower you can’t miss seeing. The spire of St. Peter’s Church rises nearly 300 feet. Near the top is a great observation deck. Old Pete was consecrated in 1368. This qualifies Peterskirche as Munich’s oldest church. An earlier church occupied this site in 1158 constructed by Benedictine monks. They were granted permission to live here by Henry III. Henry the Lion was duke of Bavaria from 1156 – 1180. The monastery evolved into today’s Munich.
