Frankfurt Travel Guide
St. Paul's Church (Paulskirche)
St. Paul's Church is by antonomasia, the national symbol of
freedom and democracy in Germany, as it was here that on May
18, 1848 that the first freely elected National Assembly gathered
to draft the constitution for a unified Germany, a process
which later failed due to Prussia and Austria's opposition.
The next uprisings that supported the imposition of a constitution
were quashed and Parliament was dissolved by forceful means.
In 1852 St. Paul's Church was once again exclusively
a place of worship. However, upon its reconstruction after
World War II, St. Paul 's Church was no longer used for religious
purposes. Instead it focused on its role as the 'Cradle of
German Democracy', with exhibitions and commemorative ceremonies.
While learning Spanish at a German
Language Course in Frankfurt you'll have the chance to
pay this landmark church a visit.
