We were going to walk over to the church but it was getting late and we didn’t want to walk over there and then have the church be closed. We instead just took pictures from the Eiserner Steg Bridge. If we had more time we would have ventured over. There’s always reason to come back lol.

I visited the Dreikonigskirche, or Church of the Three Kings, on a recent visit to Frankfurt & really enjoyed the atmosphere. It is a Lutheran parish church on the banks of the River Mein & was built between 1875 & 1881, on the site of a 12th century Gothic hospital chapel, by Franz Joseph von Denzinger. When I was there the organ was being played, not as a full concert but as a rehearsal for a concert taking place later in the day. It was very enjoyable & was made more so when a friendly chap who works there suggested I go up to one of the upper galleries which run along the North & South sides of the nave. From here I was able to get a really good view of the organ & organist, plus great views down into the main body of the church. There is also a small treasury on display with cabinets containing various plate etc.

This is an absolutely stunning church located on the way to the wonderful Sachsenhausen district,to get the best views of the church I think when you cross the Eiserner Steg ( beautiful bridge ) were you can take in the great views of the church.
There has been a church on this site since 1340 but the original church was demolished and this new church was completed between 1875 - 1881,great stained glass windows were added in 1956 and a fabulous organ was added later on,it's riverside setting looks awesome and it's most definitely well worth checking out.
Easy to locate on Dreikonigsstraße.

We visited this church as we heard of its beautiful architecture. Yet it seemed out of place, not really in a nice neighbourhood, and there was not really the ability to go in it. We just walked a circle around it and left again
