Devil’s footprint

Devil’s footprint

[ May, 2013 ] This is the devil’s footprint.

It is near the entrance of Freuenkirche, the symbolic church of Munich.

According to the direction, when the church was built, the devil came and stood there and sneered “this church does not have any windows!”.

In fact, there are windows in this church, but when you stand on this spot, you cannot see any windows.

Another story is that when they were building the church, the devil demanded to make one without windows and when it was completed, the clever architect let him stand here so that he got satisfied.

This church was built late15th century.

There are two tall towers, about 99 metre high.

Apparently no one can build anything taller than this in the city centre, as this church is the spiritual heart of Munich.
