St. Lambertus Church, Dusseldorf

The medieval St. Lambertus Church, likely the oldest building in Dusseldorf, is one of the historic quarter's best-known landmarks and houses the bones of St. Apollinaris, the city's patron saint. The structure's the famous leaning roof was said to have been twisted by the Devil in a fit of rage. When the spire was destroyed by fire in 1815, the fresh wood used for the hurried reconstruction was so moist that it buckled as it dried. Inside the minor basilica, you can see the tomb of Duke Wilhelm V of Jülich-Kleve-Berg, Dusseldorf's most important piece of Renaissance sculpture. Pick up a guide at the entrance to the church. After your visit, stroll over to the Rhine Promenade for a walk and a cup of coffee.

  • Very interesting, beautiful church, like a museum. All the time open . Very intriguing. Must to visit  more »
  • The Church is the oldest building in the city. Built in the first half of the 12th century. Then the Church was wooden. At the end of the 14th century stone building was built. Has been severely damaged by the explosion, which occurred during the thirty years war, so it took several decades to recover. But now we can admire the unique design of the middle ages
