An iconic image of Munich and famed for its two dome-topped brick towers, construction of the cathedral began in the latter part of the 15th century and was finally completed some 20 years later, when it opened with grand celebrations and rapture. Along with the New Town Hall, the cathedral and its imposing architecture dominates Munich city centre. This will always be the case, since the city now prohibits any buildings of more than 100 metres / 328 feet in height.
