St. Paul's Church, Frankfurt am Main

St Paul's Church (German: Paulskirche) in Frankfurt am Main is a church with important political symbolism in Germany. It was started as a Lutheran church in 1789—coincidentally the same year as the French Revolution. By 1849, it had become the seat of the Frankfurt Parliament, the first publicly and freely-elected German legislative body.

Today

Today St. Paul's is no longer used as a church, instead it became a venue used for various displays and events. The most well-known is the annual awarding of the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade during the Frankfurt Book Fair.

In 1963, US President John F. Kennedy gave a major speech in the Paulskirche during his visit to the country.

For the 150th birthday of the German democratic experience in 1998, St Paul's once again attracted public interest.
