3.9
St. Paul's Church (Paulskirche)--the birthplace of modern German democracy--started as a Neoclassical church built between 1789 and 1833. The site of the country's first parliament gathering in 1848, it was bombed and destroyed during World War II. Donations from across the county allowed for its reconstruction. Because the assembly hall on the first floor is reserved for state functions and private events, it is best to admire this site from the outside.

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

  • Very historical place. It was fun reading the description of this building, what it looks like back then and now. Also, learning German history and the significance of this building thru out history. NOTE: This is a building that is quiet and requires respect, so preferably no kids running around, screaming, etc.
  • Nice building with an exhibition inside. Very photogenic.
