This Protestant church really gives off a false appearance. The spiritual history of Germany is to blame.

Protestant church.

Despite the fact that the Catholic and Christian religions are predominant in Düsseldorf and the rest of North Rhine-Westphalia, other spiritual creeds have played an important role in the city’s history. There were also a large number of Protestants and Evangelists, which is now the second most prevalent religion of the area. However, the building of temples for these denominations was banned until the 17th century. Because of this, the church located at number 18 on Berger Street does not look like a working church. Originally, the church was secretly opened inside the building and the area’s residents would discreetly gather here to pray and honour their creeds. It is hard to believe that, years later, Protestantism would become so prominent in Germany.
