Bad Homburg vor der Höhe Travel Tip:
Church of the Redeemer (Erlöserkirche)
Interior of the Church of the Redeemer
The Church of the Redeemer, an Evangelical (Protestant) church, was finished in 1908. The building is outwardly of a heavy, romanesque revival appearance, while its interior is held in a neo-Byzantine style, with rich marble wall decorations and gold mosaics covering the domed ceiling. The church's construction was paid for and the design supervised by Wilhelm II, the German Emperor, who had by then made Bad Homburg a summer residence town, and later often came to worship in the church, sitting in his own imperial box with a private entrance. Empress Auguste-Viktoria also provided the jewel-studded altar which was originally intended for the Church of the Redeemer in the Augusta Victoria complex in Jerusalem.
