This is a very unusual building and worth a visit inside. We were expecting a traditional old church, but it isn't at all. The history is amazing, and upstairs is more like an auditorium than a church.

It is a very special place for Germans, but also it is important for us as well, JFK had a speech there and sitting one of those seats and imagining him talking up there...it was a real moment. It was as close as the moment...More

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

There is not much to look at, it seemed free to go in. They had some area downstairs where you could read some information and then a large hall upstairs. Other than that not much

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.

St. Paul's Church is easy to find, half a block northwest of Romerplaz, the central square in Frankfurt altstadt. Its round shape and brick exterior make it architecturally unusual, and caught my eye while walking near the tourist information center, Romer. I circled the building,...More

This old church was magnificent. The architecture is amazing. It is right next to the Röm and that whole area has to be on your trip plan.

We visited St. Paul's church during our recent visit to Frankfurt & were really impressed by both the church itself & its historic legacy. It was constructed between 1789 & 1833 & originally served as a Lutheran church before becoming the seat of the National...More

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
