The church is notable for being the venue of the 1848 Frankfurt Parliament, the first publicly and freely-elected German legislative body hence, an embodiment of the start of democracy in the German states. I wasn't sure if it was open when we were there. It...More

We popped in for the art exhibition in the basement (excellent, pieces were for sale but were very expensive). However there’s so much more to this place, as a tour guide told us later on. There are lots of information points as you walk around,...More

Unfortunately I didn't manage to see inside, apart from a view through the locked door as I was working during the day, but the xhurch provided a fine backcloth to the Christmas market and, from what I did see looking in, it looked a facinating...More

Very interesting place. It is a former church and now I would say it is more a museum. But I recommend to visit it

This is a very unusual building and worth a visit inside. We were expecting a traditional old church, but it isn't at all. The history is amazing, and upstairs is more like an auditorium than a church.

It is a very special place for Germans, but also it is important for us as well, JFK had a speech there and sitting one of those seats and imagining him talking up there...it was a real moment. It was as close as the moment...More

Seeing the red stone exterior, it’s roundness, and the church-related steppe conditions you to expect a church related interior. But no longer a Protestant Church, and almost non-existent with it’s WWII demolishing. St Paul’s was built in 1789 in its oval shape. Easy to hear...More

The history in Frankfurt is storied and this church stands as a testament to that. I was first surprised by the etching of JFK outside and then felt the magnitude of decision-making as I went indoors. We didn't have lots of time, so our visit...More

There is not much to look at, it seemed free to go in. They had some area downstairs where you could read some information and then a large hall upstairs. Other than that not much
