St. Paul’s Church in Frankfurter – the cradle of German democracy
Frankfurt’s Paulskirche is one of the most important historical buildings in Germany. Where church members celebrated services from 1833, the first National Assembly of Germany met from 1848. The “Paulskirchenversammlung” (Paul’s Church Assembly) gave birth to the first constitution for a German federal state on 28 March 1849 in Frankfurt. It was here that democratic Germany took its first steps. Although the parliament failed, the building has remained the symbol of the democratic spirit until today. Badly damaged in 1944, Paul’s Church was reopened as early as 1948. Today it is a monument to freedom, unity and democracy. With a changed interior design and a new role as a monument, Paul’s Church today welcomes guests from all over the world to tell its story.
