Sight 2: Alt St. Martin

Show sight on map

The church of Alt St. Martin is the oldest church in Düsseldorf and at the same time the oldest surviving building in the state capital. The origins of the former Bilk parish church lie in Carolingian times. The church, originally built around the year 700 and rebuilt around the year 1000, presumably also served as a parish church for the then neighbouring community of Düsseldorf until 1206. In 1812, Alt St. Martin lost its function as the parish church of Bilk and was no longer used as a church for over a century. After war damage and several elaborate restorations, the Catholic parish of St. Bonifatius and the Protestant Lutheran parish now regularly celebrate services in Alt St. Martin.
