St. Michael in Berg am Laim is a church in Munich, southern Germany, built from 1738 to 1751 by Johann Michael Fischer as Court Church for Prince Archbishop Clemens August of Cologne, a son of the Bavarian Elector Maximinial Emmanuel. Clemens August owned Berg am Laim as a manor. It was also served by a Brotherhood of St. Michael the Archangel. The Catholic church is one of the chief works of the Bavarian rococo period.
The elegant facade with its twin towers provides a strong vertical accent was designed as the terminal feature of a street to the inner city which was never built. It is the only church of Fischer which was decorated in the rococo style with rich rocaille, maybe this was due to François de Cuvilliés the Elder, who served as a building inspector for this church.
