Saint Lambert's Basilica

Bird's eye views of the city.

This Catholic church was erected between the 13th and 14th centuries and is one of the most visible façades of the city. This stone and red brick Gothic monument served as a posthumous tribute to Saint Lambert, who was assassinated in the city of Liege in the year 705 for defending and reasserting his Catholic beliefs. The church also served as a mausoleum, in which the remains of this martyr were kept. Its façade is one of Düsseldorf’s symbols and is easily recognised by its enormous 72-metre tall tower, which can be seen from almost every part of the city. Although it had to be restored on several occasions due to the region’s adverse climate, it has maintained its original shape and its tower, which was restored with wood and curves to create this unique helix shape.
