The Church of St. Remigius, Bonn

The church of St. Remigius in the city of Bonn is a Gothic, three-nave basilica with an underground vault; it was originally known as the Minoritenkirche or Brethren Church back in 1317. The construction of the church began in 1272 by the mendicant order of the Franciscans and was initially intended as a monastery church.

Nowadays, The Catholic Community Church also uses the church as a university.
