St. Trinitatis

St. Trinitatis

In order not to be compared with the diverse Cologne works of the Romanesque and Gothic style, St. Trinitatis was modelled on old-Christian basilicas. In actual fact, Cologne was enriched with a work of Berlin late-Classicism.

Milestones
1797 Since the occupation of Cologne by French troops, Protestants were tolerated for the first time
1802 The City granted the Protestants the right to freely practise their religion
1857-60 In the area of the old merchant city, the parish church of the Protestant merchants was constructed and given the name the »Protestant Cathedral«
1965 The church, which was almost totally destroyed in the Second World War, was newly built

After the Second World War, the building was reconstructed based on old plans, and thus the unusual campanile-style tower attached to the right side of the chancel, and the four-axis central nave, which is surrounded on three sides by galleries, can still be seen today.
