Monschau Town Church

Monschau Town Church


Building of national importance

The Protestant town church of Monschau stands directly on the River Rur in the centre of Monschau’s old town. Built from 1787 by the wealthy Lutheran clothiers, it was completed in 1810 with the installation of the organ and two galleries. At first glance, the simple façade does not suggest the richly decorated interior of the Monschau town church. Especially because of the mirrored ceiling and the valuable stuccowork in the Louis-Seize style, the Monschau town church is worth a visit. Due to the rarity of the magnificent interior, the house of God was designated a “Building of National Importance” by the German Bundestag and awarded the title of “Town Church of the Year 2012”.
