Lovely old church was nice and cool inside after travelling around in the heat of summer. It dates from the 13th century and is the oldest surviving building in Düsseldorf. Lots of statutes and unusual relics inside like those of St. Apolinarus. Story about the crooked steeple was that when a young woman was going to be married, she lied... More

What a beautiful interior this church has, totally breathtaking. A good find as we stumbled around the Old Town. Built in the style of Lower Rhine Gothic with brick with a strange 'twisted tower'. Definitely worth a look around.

Nice Gothic architecture of course, the location in the old town is good, so it would be a stop of a walk around trip to discover Dusseldorf, it must be. I managed to catch up with the Sunday mass in early morning, it was special although I did not understand most of it since I do not speak Dutch, and... More

This church dated from the 12th century, is the oldest in the city, and has sculptures of the Christ crucifiction at the outside as well as inside. Both of high artistic value and large in size. Also the fresco's and bells are impressive as well as the golden shrine of Sint Apollinarus, in front of the altar.

This imposing church sits just at the north end of altstadt. It is beautiful in its own right, but look up at the steeple. It is crooked and twisted. The story goes that back in the mid 1850's a couple were married here who were not virgins. The devil tried to pull the church down to hell and in the... More

We just admire it from the outside. A beautiful church that stands beside the Rhine river. You won't miss it while you walk along the river side.
