New St. John's Church, Munich

The parish church of St. John the Baptist (German: Pfarrkirche St. Johann or Pfarrkirche St. Johannes der T├Ąufer) is a Roman Catholic church in the Munich district of Haidhausen. It was designed by Matthias Berger on Locust Place in the Gothic Revival style. The west tower is 97 meters high, making it the third highest church in Munich.

In the early 19th-century, the population of Munich grew sharply on both banks of the Isar. The old church of Haidhausen soon became too small to fit its growing congregation. Therefore, it was decided to construct a new, larger church. In the 1840s, the foundation stone for the church was laid.
