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

We saw this church and it had an unusual architecture to it so naturally we wanted to go inside but it was closed for some reason and it wasn’t late? We couldn’t understand it so we had to leave but had hoped it was open.

Paulskirche is a beautifully simplistic former Protestant church that also became a legislature for a short time in the mid 1800s. It is a symbol of democracy and was heavily damaged during WWII but rebuilt and a symbol of the new country that Germany wanted...More

Now an exhibition hall, the location of the church is a perfect meeting spot not far from the market vendors. The building closes at 17h30.

Everything in Frankfurt is so close together.. including St. Paul's Church.. basically all in the Roemer district. You can spend a day in the area .. and bump into everything you need to see.
