The Catholic church of Johann Nepomuk, known as the Asam Brothers Church, in Munich, was built by the Asam Brothers Cosmas Damian and Egid Quirin as their private church between 1733 and 1746. It is considered one of the best examples of Bavarian Late Baroque architecture or Rococo, the Asamkirche is framed by the Asam House (the Asamahus) that was built in 1733, on the left and on the right by the priest's house built in 1771. It is on the Sendlinger Strasse. The brothers were forced to make it available to the public.
