This was a good historical site. The exterior is a church, but the interior has been scrubbed of all religious implications. It is a good place to visit for history.

Called the cradle of German Democracy. The mural on the inside is impressive. Is it a celebration or a wake? You decide. The artist Johannes Grutkze has done an excellent job in pointing out the ambivalence about democracy, with all its winners and losers.

This circular church is no longer used for services. But free entrance allows you to enter and gain information about the structure and the surrounding area. Quirky!

No longer a church but interesting and hard to miss from the outside. Inside there is a lot of historical information. Free admission, not too crowded despite being Christmas Market time and this place is right at one of the markets.

You won't be able to miss this rotund building when strolling the historic core of Frankfurt. It's not beautiful but it is interesting. Stroll by and give it a look.

Originally a church but now more of a museum with art gallery on the lower floor and auditorium on the upper. Ground floor of most interest with lots of English translation.

An interesting unorthodox designed church, filled with details about its history; it was ignored by most even though the surrounding was very busy.

As I visit you can only try to imagine the times during WW2. As you walk in there are murals picturing the impact the war had on this church and how it was rebuilt. Wonderful place to walk into and just think.
