“Stunning surprise ..”

We stumbled on St Pauls while out walking. What a wonderful ‘find’ … the most amazing ceiling paintings … a jaw-dropping moment when you walk in. It’s not on the ‘Tourist route’ but well worth searching for. About a 10 min walk from the Porta Nigra.

The paintings on the ceiling are great and heavily framed with plaster work and cherubs on the pilasters. No guidebook in any language, but definitely the best views are inside. The Alter is gilt and very high Baroque in style and it's a very light church. It has concerts part of the year, unfortunately we did not hear one. It is currently raising funds to start a major restoration project, mainly to fix the roof. The cemetery is also very well kept. If you like Baroque this is the church for you!!!!

A beautiful yellow church.
The legend or history says that Napoleon did not take the treasures out of this church, because even he was touched by its stunning beauty.
They also have a stunning organ. Go there for a concert if you can.

We have visited this church many times and it is still a thrill to open the door and step inside.
I have been told Balthazar Neumann (spelling approximate!), who designed the interior, wanted those entering this church to feel as if they are entering heaven. The ceilings are so impressively painted, in a baroque style, as to make verbal description very challenging. The white walls and backgrounds really bring out the detail of the various heavenly scenes. Photos don't do it justice. Must be seen if you're visiting Trier
