Here’s Your First Look Inside the Renovated Frankfurt Germany Temple

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The Frankfurt Germany Temple is preparing to open after an extended closure for major renovations. In anticipation of the rededication, new photographs have been released showing the updates.

The temple closed in 2015 to accommodate a renovation and enlargement of the temple, including a new underground baptistry. It was originally the fifth temple built in Europe and the second built in the current boundaries of Germany, following the Freiberg Germany Temple. During the Frankfurt Germany Temple’s week-and-a-half-long open house in 1987 more than 70,000 people visited the sacred structure.

Care was taken to preserve key historic features of the temple’s exterior (such as the stone cladding and copper roof) while providing updates. New trees and shrubs have been added to the landscape to complement the existing plantings of the temple grounds and to harmonize with vegetation generally found in the Friedrichsdorf area.

 

 

 

 

The temple, which is located several miles north of Frankfurt in the historic city of Friedrichsdorf, will be formally dedicated on Sunday, October 20, 2019, in three sessions. There will also be a youth devotional with senior Church leaders on Saturday, October 19, 2019.

 

The public is invited to tour the newly remodeled temple; the free open house is from Friday, September 13, to Saturday, September 28, 2019, excluding Sundays.
