Christuskirche is a Protestant church in the Oststadt district of Mannheim. Together with the Church of Peace, it forms the Pax Christi congregation. Built between 1907 and 1911, it was built in a neo-baroque style, according to Christian Schrader's plan, with new art colors. It was barely affected by the devastation of the 1943/44 massive war and remained almost entirely in its original state. Christuskirche adapted to Oststadt's upper-class villa district in its rich form and formed the climax of Protestant church construction activities, which were necessary due to the rapid population growth during Mannheim's industrialized period.
