The ring church is a Protestant church in Wiesbaden, which the architect and master builder Johannes Otzen built from 1892 to 1894 in a neo -Romanesque style. Its twin storm forms the western end of the broad axis of the Rheinstraße. The ring church was the first Protestant church in Germany, which was built according to the so -called Wiesbaden program, a church building program that was based on Martin Luther's demands for a "priesthood of all believers". The result is a functional central building, which until the end of the First World War became a model for numerous Protestant church buildings in Germany. To date, the directional building from the Wilhelminian period has mainly been able to preserve its original shape.
