Stephanuskirche in the Neuhausen-Nymphenburg district of Munich is an Evangelican-Lutheran church community. The church was built between 1936 and 1938 in the new-Roman round-arch style. The building was designed by architect German Bestelmeyer, a well-known adversary of the modernist avant-garde style of the early twentieth century. A typical hallmark of new-Roman architecture is that it does not adhere to the Roman design language of the Middle Ages. And the same was true of Bestelmeyer: The huge nine-metre-wide tower integrated into the north side of the church is more gothic in appearance. The 26-metre hip roof reaches the same lofty heights as the tower, which has a pointed gable on top. The eaves height of the building is around nine metres, or just a third of the overall height.
