The church is simple and not sophisticated inside. It is one of the buildings to see around the Romer Square.

This is a small, very old Gothic church situated alone in the center of a pedestrian square. It has lots of presence and charm. The original church was built in 1150, and the most recent rehab was in 1951. The architecture and pipe organ is very interesting and worth a stop by if you're in Frankfurt.

This protestant church with white and red bricks and stone with green tower is located near the center of the Romer. Opening mornings at 10.00 am, the interior is dimly lit and it has stained glass windows and several sculptures at the rear of the church. The pipe organs are enclosed in a wooden case. I quick visit is recommended... More

RIght off the bustling tourist plaza is this lovely little church. I sat there for a long while and looked at the very medieval stain glass windows and the old organ. Well worth it.

This is a decent little church, located in Roemerberg. I was actually expecting an impressive church (being so central and all), but the church turned out to be rather simple, not too interesting and other than the lovely stained glass windows, there's nothing much to see inside. A 5-minute visit is all you need.

This church is much smaller than the others in the area but worth the visit. Very interesting to compare how simple, yet beautiful with the church really is. Note the colorful and bright stained glass which survived the war, the other windows are those replaced with more gray colors were the ones requiring replacement. Worth the stop!

It may be small, but it's worth a 10 minute visit to see the stained glass windows and to appreciate the architecture. I personally loved it - a great change from the large and imposing churches nearby.

Located right in the heart of the city, this is an easy church to find. However, it is small and unimpressive. There is some history here, but nothing worth more than just a quick look.
