St. Paul's Church, Frankfurt
(3.8/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Low square has installed an exhibition and is worth up to the first floor to observe the peculiar decoration.

  • Visit to the 15.10.2016 in a city guide. St. Paul's Church is a national monument and should necessarily be visited by every politically interested people. The admission is free. St. Paul's Church as a political Memorial and meeting place for special ceremonies and important awards was inaugurated in 1948. So was here, for example, a few days after my visit, on October 23, 2016 awarded the peace prize of the German book trade. The three metre high colossal painting "The train of the representatives of the people" by Johannes Grützke in the oval-shaped ambulatory of the ground floor is worth a visit in any case. The permanent exhibition "St. Paul's Church" is located in the lobby of the basement. On 18 March 1944, St. Paul's Church burnt out after a British bomber air raids. During the reconstruction the original Interior was completely changed. The also featured Chamber is located on the first floor and was separated by a false ceiling of the ground floor. Two sets of stairs along the curved wall in the 28 metre high plain Chamber rise from here which is adorned with the flag of the Federal Republic of Germany, of the sixteen federal States and the city of Frankfurt.

  • Inside she not reserve any surprises, but the outside is quite interesting to join the tower with a circular central part.

  • 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
