    Description :

    This round structure with adjoining altar house is one of the finest examples of German church architecture from the between-war period. Eight parabolic, convex brick-clad walls with high-set round windows carry a like number of similarly-shaped concrete vaults that form impressive folds on the interior and converge in the center.

    Buildings housing community services and activities screen the church from the surrounding apartment houses.

    The church is nicknamed the “lemon squeezer” by Cologne citizens.
