La chiesa di San Ludovico (in lingua tedesca: Ludwigskirche) è una parrocchia cattolica e allo stesso tempo la chiesa universitaria di Monaco di Baviera. Si trova nel quartiere Maxvorstadt sul lato nord della via monumentale Ludwigsstrasse. All'interno della chiesa si trova il secondo più esteso affresco d'altare al mondo, opera di Peter von Cornelius, che raffigura il Giudizio universale.
Fu progettata da Friedrich von Gärtner nel 1829 per volontà del re Ludovico I di Baviera, che voleva dedicarla al suo santo patrono, San Ludovico, re di Francia. Tuttavia il risultato non piacque al committente.

Magnificent church. I've added s several photos which speak better of the church's beauty than my words. The church is slightly off the beaten track - away from the centre of Munich but well worth the walk

This is a magnificent building in itself, but the amazing painted decoration is stunning inside. It is situated on a very busy road but once inside it is serene and lovely.It looked well used; I believe it is used by the University as well as the Parish. Ideal for a half hour visit.

The Catholic Parish and University Church St. Louis also referred to as Ludwigskirche is located along Ludwigstrasse in Munich. This is a a large Neo-Romanesque style church built by German architect Friedrich von Gärtner between 1829-44. The church features an attractive facade with two towers and a nice portico with ceiling frescos. The interior features a deep barrel vault nave and impressive frescos. The nave is nicely lined with modestly decorated columns. The two side aisles are nice to see as well. The most memorable part of our visit was the very large Peter von Cornelius 'Last Judgment' fresco behind the altar. This is a huge and attractive artwork, one that really sticks out from a visit to Ludwigskirche. In fact, viewing the Cornelius fresco alone is worth the quick visit to the church. In the end, we liked our visit to Ludwigkirche, it is worth a 15-20 minute visit and can be conveniently included in your sightseeing plans if you plan to visit the Odenplatz, Museum District or western side of the English Gardens during your time in Munich.
