The church of Our Lady is one of three Romanesque churches which shape the appearance of “altstadt” Koblenz. Its origin dates back to the 5th century, when the Franks built a House of God within the Roman walls. Under use of the foundations it was repeatedly developed and extended. The façade with two towers in the West corresponds in its representative aspect with the West front of the former Koblenzer founding churches of St. Kastor and St. Florin. The Liebfrauenkirche has 4 clocks in its bell tower. In memory of the closure of the city gates and the associated military tattoo was to toll the Barbara clock, the so-called "Lumpen-clock", over the years. Every night at 22 h reads the "Lumpen-clock" tolls. Then it is silenced until the morning after. The old pastors Court of the Liebfrauenkerk is located immediately south of the Florin's Church.
