St. Peter's Church May 05, 2011
This is one of my favourite places in Munich! Situated right next to central Marienplatz on a small hill this church is easy to find. I would highly recommend to go on top of the tower to enjoy the magnificent view! You can even step outside on a balcony which gives you a more intense experience. Okay I must say - getting up there is hard work. There is no elevator and the staircase is pretty old, narrow and you should n´tsuffer claustrophobia.

But the view is worth all the effort. Up there you have a great look on Marienplatz, Viktualienmarkt and all other "must sees" of Munich. Go for it!

Old St. Peter's Church Sep 08, 2010
St. Peter's Church in the Town of St. George is said to be the oldest continuously operating Protestant church in the New World. The church was founded in 1612 by the first permanent Bermuda colonists. The oldest section of the present church building dates to 1619. Additions to the structure were made over time until 1841.

The simple but impressive interior is built of Bermuda Cedar. The ceiling beams resemble the construction of a ship's hull, perhaps not surprising in maritime-oriented St. George. The Altar Table, still in use, was made in 1612. The Pulpit was made in 1660. Box-style pews are similar to those found in Colonial-era churches in Virginia.

Outside, St. Peter's Churchyard is the oldest cemetery in Bermuda. Gravestones record both prominent and ordinary people. Of interest is the segregated section originally set aside for slaves and free Black persons.

There is no charge for admission, but a donation is suggested.
