The medieval St. Lambertus Church, likely the oldest building in Dusseldorf, is one of the historic quarter's best-known landmarks and houses the bones of St. Apollinaris, the city's patron saint. The structure's the famous leaning roof was said to have been twisted by the Devil in a fit of rage. When the spire was destroyed by fire in 1815, the fresh wood used for the hurried reconstruction was so moist that it buckled as it dried. Inside the minor basilica, you can see the tomb of Duke Wilhelm V of Jülich-Kleve-Berg, Dusseldorf's most important piece of Renaissance sculpture. Pick up a guide at the entrance to the church. After your visit, stroll over to the Rhine Promenade for a walk and a cup of coffee. Make St. Lambertus Church part of your personalized Dusseldorf itinerary using our Dusseldorf tour itinerary tool.

Lovely place in the old part of Düsseldorf. Tranquility is the word when you go inside this beautiful church. Suggest to go when it is early before lunch as less people make it even more tranquil. Sound of the organ is great and it was playing when we entered.
Very beautiful interior. A little creepy, but fantastic.
