Stumbled into the church on a wander through the city. Not what you expect with the ornate organ and stained glass windows. Church has been looked after very well and is a beauty

Small but colorful church with a single bell tower one hundred eighty five meters high. The church was built in the 1600s it was almost completely destroyed during World War II. The church is on the plaza next to the Hauptwache. Free entrance.

Simple, old, pretty, but nothing in English. I would love to have learned more about this place. Nice Tower. Center of most activity for old Frankfurt.
