The Church of the Savior in Gerolstein is undoubtedly one of the places that guests should visit during a stay in the fountain town Gerolstein.

Millions of mosaic stones, which illuminate the interior of the church spectacularly according to the incidence of light, testify to the wealth and power of the last German emperor. On 25 May 1911, the foundation stone of the extraordinary Protestant Church of the Redeemer was laid in the heart of the Catholic Eifel by direct order of Wilhelm II. After almost two years of construction, the emperor, shortly before the end of his reign, could not help but inaugurate the costly magnificent building himself on 15. 10. 1913. The Church of the Redeemer is regarded as a rare art-historical document of the end of the German Empire and is interpreted as a political monument. The impressive central building in Neo-Romanesque style with its sparkling gold mosaics inspires thousands of churchgoers every year and is one of the top attractions in the Volcano Eifel region.

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