The Ingolstadt Liebfrauenmünster was built in 1407 shortly before the founding of a second parish in Ingolstadt as a wooden church. Duke Louis the Bearded of Ingolstadt (reigned 1413-1447) built the church to the spiritual center of his duchy. From 1429 he had the building still existing today (completed in 1525) and founded numerous foundations at the church. On a picture of Mary given by him, the actual name of the church goes back to "the beautiful of Our Lady". Since 1472 the Liebfrauenmünster also served as a university church. Especially in the 16th century, the church was again richly equipped. Baroque, Enlightenment and Neo-Gothic no longer fundamentally changed the building.historisches-lexikon-bayerns.de/Lexikon/Liebfrauenmünster,_Ingolstadt

The cathedral is the largest church in Ingolstadt. A huge church with huge dimensions. The nave of the church measures 89 meters in length and 37 meters in width with a height of the roof prince of 62 meters. The two overcast towers measure a height of 62 and 69 meters.The construction of the Liebfrauen Münster began in 1425 and was financed by the Duke Ludwig VII of Wittelsbach. The late Gothic building was planned as a funerary church for him, but he was never buried there because he died in enemy captivity. The church was completed only 100 years after construction began, and generations of workers worked on this beautiful structure. The cathedral has its name to the beautiful Our Lady of a picture of Mary which was unfortunately destroyed. The most famous pastor was the theologian Professor Johannes Eck, the sharpest critic of Luther's reformation.ingolstadt.bayern-online.de/ingolstadt/sehenswertes/b

Late Gothic hall church from the 15th century. Impressive building, which has a castle-like appearance due to its massive towers. Also worth seeing is the church interior with the high altar from 1572, the old and modern glass windows and the 5436 pipe Klais organ. No admission, please be considerate of prayers and no visit at the service.
