What travelers say:

St. Paul's Church in Frankfurt was built in 1833. The architectural style is a classicism not very common in Germany, and it is also a historic building rich in political symbols. This was originally a Protestant Lutheran church. On May 18, 1848, the first National Assembly was held here, and the meeting was called the "St. Paul's Church Assembly". The meeting passed a proposal to formulate the German Constitution. Although constitutional activities failed due to opposition from Prussia and Austria, St. Paul’s Church has become a cultural symbol of German democracy and unity. During World War II, St. Paul’s Church was destroyed and rebuilt after the war. The church has been transformed from a religious building into a political and cultural venue. Many memorial reliefs are displayed inside the current church, which vividly reproduce the constitution that year. It is also worth mentioning that since 1949, the Goethe Prize for the German Literature Prize, which is awarded every three years, has been issued in Paul's Church.
