  • This Protestant Church is located right in the Centre of the city. It is a relatively small church with a particular appearance. One side of the building consists of a dark blue glass front. The effect of this on the inside is very special. A beautiful blue appearance is the result.

  • Beautiful place
  • Marktkirche
  • Lovely little church, which looks very well maintained and you should visit once. She deserves it and is a part of food and probably writes a super little story. ;-)

  • The Church is the oldest Protestant Church in the Centre of Essen. It is worship of the Church circuit and reentry site of the Evangelical Church in Essen. First mention is a chapel "ad sanctam Gertrudern" (Propsteikirche) 1054, in the 13th century also served as the Essen City Council Chamber, which is known since the 14th century Church of the market. In the 1930s, the story precedes virtually as the Marktkirche is urban planners in the way and is to be demolished; What is even more encouraged by the financial problems of the Church. But still the market Church is all efforts aimed against them. 1943 to 1945 the formerly three-aisled Hall church is almost completely destroyed by Allied bombing on the outer walls and two bays; the Tower fell most. After the war, was the market Church the urban planners in turn as an obstacle and originally should be rebuilt. Fortunately it was at least a partial reconstruction. 1950 to 1952, the two Eastern bays were rebuilt and the Church in its previous footprint almost halved. The foundations of the tower and the other church fell urban planning to the victims and were demolished. 2005-2006 the market Church received its current appearance. It was supplemented by a new West choir from blue glass, the former West portals were placed in the gallery and the Alfred Krupp monument was moved to its original place at the Kettwiger Straße, after it earlier before the West market church choir has confessed. Most recently had to 2011 / 2012 exchanged all roof shingles, rehabilitated the Flèche and the rain water pipes are replaced by new, because continuous moisture had penetrated the market Church.
