St. Paul's Church

Green with red to match.

This is one of the most important churches in Frankfurt for three reasons. First of all, its oval shape and green roofs mixed with the reddish colour of its walls turn it into a very well-known and original piece of architecture. Secondly, it was a church which was built in 1789 as one of the first protestant churches in the city. The Protestant religion is the second largest in the city and one of the most important points for being able to understand German culture and history. But most of all, it's remembered because this circular-floored church was chosen as the parliament headquarters for the city of Frankfurt during the so-called 'Spring of Nations' in 1848. With this status, the church hosted each National Assembly meeting for two years and it was due to this that it has gone down in history as one of the most important democratic symbols of the city.
