Unfortunately I didn't manage to see inside, apart from a view through the locked door as I was working during the day, but the xhurch provided a fine backcloth to the Christmas market and, from what I did see looking in, it looked a facinating...More

Very interesting place. It is a former church and now I would say it is more a museum. But I recommend to visit it

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
