St. Paul's Church, Frankfurt

3.8
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.

    I did not well understand its murals soda that I have to inform me better. But it was exciting to know that after the war took place there the creation of democracy, after these difficult years. A building in keeping with the importance of what is commemorated there.

    The old and historic district of Frankfurt, Romer will encounter this church when you go. When you look at it from the outside the Church. That's what the name Actually. But when you come round the walls of this structure as a matter of fact, you will see the German democracy history pictures. Most of the pictures, in some places, you will find documents and information. The Church is part of the round and are simple. You need to be seen to sort it? Appreciate you.

  • A church that has a steep political history. Free entry and interesting wandering around looking at the birth of German democracy.
  • 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'
