One of the oldest buildings in Essen, dating back to the turn of the 10th century, also happens to be one of the most beautiful. The Luciuskirche, or Church of Lucius is certain to delight visitors in the mood for a quaint little attraction that offers a real glimpse at life in ancient Germany, and what the customs and culture of the time were like. The Luciuskirche is a simple building with an architectural style that hearkens back to Roman influences.
Inside the church, one can find an unexpected delight. Three frescoes remain on the walls from the 11th century, depicting biblical scenes in a highly detailed style that simply takes the breath away. Those who come to visit the church should be advised that just next door lies the large Werden Abbey Basilica, which is in itself well worth a visit. If you’re in the area and looking for something to do, the Luciuskirche is an appealing attraction guaranteed to reward your investment of time.
