St. Ulrich Church

Wayside shrine in Wingert / Ulrichstrasse

The old St. Ulrich Church was built in 1752. It served the Catholic parish of St. Ulrich as a parish church until 1964. It shows several glass windows by Georg Meistermann from the period after the Second World War.

The Catholic community later had to build a new, larger church due to the rapid growth of the place. From this time on, the Protestant parish enjoyed hospitality in the St. Ulrich Church until 1982. The condition of the church at that time did not allow any further use. In 1984 the Evangelical Church Community Frechen took over the building, renovated it from the foundation walls and added community rooms. The high altar and some figures of saints have been preserved from the elements of the Catholic Church. the building and the adjoining parish hall were bought by the Gold Kraemer Foundation. Since 2009 the object has been used for church services of both denominations and the integrative meeting center is housed there.

The portal of the new Catholic Church of St. Ulrich and St. Aegidius from 1964 is the work of the metal sculptor Jakob Riffeler .
