  • I would only recommend this attraction, if you already checked off Bonn's main attractions and has more time. If you like churches, it is a must see. It's quite nice to look at and curious. How often do you see a church of two consisting of. However, there are of course only part of the second church. There are not two completely existing churches merged. From the inner city, it is relatively easy to reach by car, bus or train. At foot it is about 30 minutes. The Church has a free car park. With the bus 15 minutes drive.

  • Great, secluded little church that is different enough to make it worth the drive
  • The Doppelkirche (Double Church) of St. Mary and St. Clement is a Romanesque church in Schwarzrheindorf, an eastern suburb of Bonn. Completed in 1151, the church has two levels and medieval wall paintings of saints and apocalyptic scenes. The Double Church of Schwarzrheindorf has an attractive exterior plastered in white and decorated with pink and yellow paint. The paint job dates from a restoration of 1973 and provides a good sense of what many now-bare churches looked like in medieval times. Inside, it has two levels: a lower church for the local community and an upper church for the lords of the castle and later the nuns. The two share the same plan: an apse with altar in the east end; small north and south transepts or apses; and a straight extension to the west for seating and entry. Over the transept crossing is a stout central tower topped with a spire. The Doppelkirche's round, monumental design is inspired by Charlemagne's Palatine Chapel at Aachen Cathedral, since the Emperor was provided with a throne here as well. It was also based on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, as it was intended as the burial place for Archbishop von Weid.
  • Definitely worth visiting. Church from the 12th century. It is a double church, two floors, the upper one dedicated to Mary (Madonna) and the lower one to Pope Clement. Double churches are often related to different christian denominations using the same building (like Catholic/Lutheran double churches), but this seems not to be the case for this one. As I read, it is not yet clear how the two different floors were used.
  • 29.08.2013 do I enter this church, I am at home. Beauty, grace, love, embraced me and I look to the sky, the sky is there. Here, I once made a promise of love and the small church radiates the brilliance of the miracles that happen if we go through life with open eyes and hearts. This small church is the most beautiful church I've ever seen. Karin
