The Church of the Cross

4) The Church of the Cross

The Church of the Cross is the largest Protestant Church in Bonn. It has plenty of room, enough to accommodate 1,200 people and serves double functions.

The Chapel of St. George, located in the Old Cemetery in Bonn, was built in the 13th century. The Romanesque building served the members of the Convention as a place of prayer and religious services. The chapel was furnished with monumental Medieval vaults and wall paintings. In the 19th century, the chapel was affected by a fire outbreak that destroyed most of the paintings inside. Fortunately, some of them have been preserved; the rest are exact reproductions of the old ones. The renovation of...   view more
