St. Paul's Church, Frankfurt

(3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
St. Paul's Church--the birthplace of modern German democracy--started as a Neoclassical church built between 1789 and 1833. The site of the country's first parliament gathering in 1848, it was bombed and destroyed during World War II. Donations from across the county allowed for its reconstruction. Because the assembly hall on the first floor is reserved for state functions and private events, it is best to admire this site from the outside. St. Paul's Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Frankfurt Edition.

  • Located in one of the main squares of the old town of Frankfurt is a beautiful, unique architecture and rich. Well worth the visit.

  • Worth taking pictures on the street and in the vicinity of this church. She is beautiful, especially rustic on the outside. Inside she is quite simple. I came in to do my prayer, took pictures and just. The entrance is free. Recommend photos outside.

  • We were already here, but today in a city guide, entitled "German history made in Frankfurt". Since St. Paul's Church is of course compulsory program. Even if the building is very convenient and the flags of the provinces and Frankfurt are the only decoration in the Chamber. The place is important to our history and should be a term any Germans.

  • Nice looking building inside and out. This is where democracy for the German people started.
  • Looks bigger in old pictures of when the German parliament once got together here. Very important place in German history.
  • It's a historical church because it is one of the few structures that remained standing after World War II. Its interior has its own beauty although it's definitely not as grand as the interior designs of many other churches in Europe. I could pray here solemnly.
  • Interesting expo about the Germany and Frankfurt modern history. It deserve 20'
  • Important historical place for German history. Not the most exciting place to visit though
