Propsteikirche Bochum
Propsteikirche St. Peter und Paul

At the Imperial Court of the Emperor Charlemagne, a wooden mission chapel was built on the nearby hill and dedicated to Saint Peter.

In the 11th century, work was started on building a stone church which was destroyed in the great city fire of 25 April 1517. Over the next 30 years the Propsteikirche was built in late Gothic style with nave and side aisles. It became a Provost church in 1888. Destroyed in World War II, by 1959 it had been rebuilt as a three-nave church. The tower is around 68 meters high and is one of the emblems of the city.
