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.

  • As the seat of the first freely elected representatives of the people, it is an important monument for democracy in Germany. The tour is very informative with many boards on which there is to read a lot of interesting things.

  • Yes, you must be as interested person most times there have been political and historical (it is more, but a meeting room by the way already not a church, it was also establishing Republic) - but why should the presentation be so boring? Still ok, just have time, of course.

  • 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
