Erlöserkirche Gerolstein

Gerolstein Church Of The Redeemer

One of the absolute highlights of the Vulkaneifel region lies in the heart of Gerolstein: the Church of the Redeemer. Inside the church there are millions of golden mosaic stones that make the interior of the church shine spectacularly depending on the light.

On the direct order of Wilhelm II, the last German emperor, the foundation stone for the extraordinary, Protestant Church of the Redeemer was laid on May 25, 1911. After just two years of construction, the central building in the neo-Romanesque architectural style was inaugurated by the emperor himself.
The Church of the Redeemer is considered a rare art-historical document of the late German imperial period and is considered a political monument.

In addition, the foundations of a Roman villa rustica were discovered during the excavation for the construction of the church. These are also open to visitors today.

A visit to the church is only possible as part of a guided tour.
