One of the oldest Catholic churches in Dusseldorf. Its history began in the VIII century with a small chapel built in honor of the missionary St. Lambert. At the end of the XIII century, a monastery was formed on the basis of the church. Inside the temple there are holy relics and works of art from the beginning of the 12th century. The Basilica of St. Lambert is subordinate to the Papal throne of the Vatican and has the status of "Basilica Minor".

Very cool Catholic Church near old town in Düsseldorf
Very nice church located in a super characteristic and old-fashioned area, I loved the architecture! The entry is free, the intern is a bit dark but worth a visit if you are around. The exterior and the nearby buildings are more suggestive tho.
Since it’s the oldest standing building on Düsseldorf, I had to make a trip to visit to t . Unfortunately, it was barred closed at time of visit. Impressive architecture from the outside, at least.
Really beautiful place, we went to lightbsome candles too and it was just beautiful. definitely a nice olace to visit if you're nearby.
Love this church, big and rich with beautiful architecture
It was not busy when I visited, which I really liked. A very nice atmosphere. Not the most impressive Basilica I've visited but it was pretty and well kept.
The church is spectacular! This is definitely a must-see and was overwhelmingly gorgeous. Make sure to take a pamphlet and read about the rich history.
I can’t explain that beauty! Words are not coming out! I am really proud of this place and church ⛪️ God always blessings all. Your blessing i write review for you! Very great! Thank you so much my lovely ?

Cool building and very interesting story about its twisted spire, definitely recommend a visit here.
St. Lambertus Church was built in 1206 and enlarged 1288–1394. The church's spire owes its twisted shape to the use of unseasoned timber when it was rebuilt after a lighting strike in 1815. Inside the church the 15th-century tabernacle and.. Read more » splendid Renaissance memorial of Duke Wilhelm V are worth of seeing.

Great church, a beautiful twisted
roof on the tower and a few stunning mural paintings from the 15th century. Also a lovely Madonna with Child from 1100.

lovely Church my favorite church in Dusseldorf!
At the beginning of the 19th century the church had become too small to meet the needs of the parish, but expansion was postponed several times due to internal disagreements within the parish and other obstacles, while minor works such as the purchas..

Starting in 1886, three proposals for the new church were submitted, but these were rejected by the parish until the designs by the young Cologne architect Erasmus Schüller were accepted with minor changes on January 12, 1887. The old church was demolished in April 1888. and construction of the new one began on September 2 of the same year. Schüller died in 1890 at the age of 29, so that the last construction phases were supervised by the architect Theodor Roß [de]. The church was consecrated on July 9, 1891 by the Archbishop of Cologne. The church was badly damaged by artillery fire in February 1945 during World War II. Repair work began the following year and was completed in 1949. The bells had been sent to Hamburg at the beginning of the war and were returned to the church in 1947. The church was added to the list of monuments in Erkelenz on May 14, 1985 due to its architectural and symbolic value. Desecration and demolition Demolished on January 9, 2018 Replacement church in Immerath-Neu The village of Immerath was on the planned route for the expansion of the Garzweiler surface mine, a large brown coal mine operated by the RWE company. The entire village was therefore demolished in the 2010s, with the company building a new settlement called Immerath-Neu 11 km away to replace it. The cemetery was also relocated, corpses were exhumed and moved to the new location. Maintaining the cost of the church had become too burdensome given the significant decline in the number of believers to fewer than 60 people. The parishioners therefore accepted the company's offer to build a new, smaller church in the new town of Immerath-Neu. Most of the interior furnishings of the old church were bought by private individuals or other parishes or religious communities. The last mass in the church was celebrated on October 13, 2013 and then desecrated. The building was demolished on January 9, 2018 amid protests by Greenpeace activists.

beautiful church and alter. acoustics could have been better, so not the best church for concerts, or maybe the choir should stand behind the prayers

A lovely church to visit if you have spare time.

A nice old church. Located at the oldest part of Dusseldorf, it is very close the Rhein river. It is very elegant and old. Very unfortunate that I didn't go inside. There are some other sculpture on the area going there though.
