The Luther Church in the Hessian state capital of Wiesbaden is a Protestant church, which was built from 1908 to 1910 in the forms of Art Nouveau and according to the principles of the Wiesbaden program. In 1903, the Protestant community of the city decided on the basis of the strong increase in the number of inhabitants after the market church, the mountain church and the ring church to build a fourth church. Since the design of the Wiesbaden program had made very good experiences with the Ringkirche, this was stipulated in the 1905 architectural competition. After the three best drafts were requested, the community finally decided on June 8, 1906, for the one from Darmstadt Church architect Friedrich Pützer. Outstanding feature is the 50 m high tower and the large church roof of 20 m height, which rises above the ridge at the height of 37 m and is supported by a sensational steel construction. Due to its location on a hill within the city center of Wiesbaden, these elements are particularly interesting for urban planning. 🚴♂️de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lutherkirche_(Wiesbaden)
