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.
This is the oldest parish church in Munich. The interior is quieter and less gorgeous than other churches in the area. But there are also many beautiful artworks and altars. It was almost completely destroyed during World War II, and it took 50 years to rebuild. It is highly recommended that you take the time to climb the tower.
Possibly a less well known building in the city, but still stunning nonetheless. It's rather striking because of the red brick appearance, which is a stark contrast to most of the buildings in the area. Despite the name it isn't actually a functioning church anymore, so there is nothing to see inside, instead it's used as an event location. I'm glad I decided to pay a visit to see the impressive architecture though, and would highly recommend others do the same.
Paulskirche (Paulskirche) is a church in Frankfurt, Germany. It is an important political symbol in Germany. It is an oval-shaped Protestant church, built in 1789 and completed in 1833. In World War II, St. Paul's Church and most of Frankfurt's inner city were almost destroyed. As it is a symbol of freedom and the cradle of Germany, it was rebuilt after the war and reopened on the 100th anniversary of the Frankfurt National Assembly. Due to funding constraints, the internal structure has changed a lot. And it is no longer used as a church, but as a venue for various exhibitions and events, such as the famous German Book Fair Peace Prize award ceremony during the Frankfurt Book Fair. There is a parking spot next to the church. Most tourists who come to the Roman Forum get off here, and there are many ancient buildings around, so you can visit at the same time.
This church is very quiet, giving people an old castle feel, and it feels like time has stopped.
