St. Paul's Church (Paulskirche), Frankfurt

4.0
St. Paul's Church (Paulskirche)--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.

  • 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.

  • The second "must see" church in Frankfurt ... there's a ton of history associated with this place.
  • A church that has a steep political history. Free entry and interesting wandering around looking at the birth of German democracy.
  • Very nice place where democracy started
  • Has construction going on, but well worth the effort of going.
  • Historic place
