“It is here that Germany's domocracy started”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

What Philadelphia is to the USA , Frankfurt and the Paulskirche is to Germany. Here people from the different regios came together in 1848-1849 to create a German constitution and to bring German unification. Unfortunately they did not succeed, as the king of Prussia rejected the German crown that was offered to him.
The small exhibition downstairs is interesting, but do go upstairs to sit there, where the parliament was. It is impressive.

“The first parliament of Germany”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This fabulous church had become the first parliament of Germant in 19th century. Those who explore the history of Germany will get bunch of information on the era from the site.

“Very different church!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Wow. I've been to lots of churches all over the world and this one is the most unique. You'll notice right away, the first floor is murals and history...you have to go upstairs to see where the services are. Flags hanging down...very different atmosphere. Amazing that it serves both religious and political significance.
