Propstei Church Dortmund – city centre Catholic church
Dortmund is a Protestant city. At least that is the impression you get when you look at the number of Protestant churches in the city centre. In fact, although there are almost as many Catholics here as there are Protestants, there is only one Catholic church in the centre of the city: The Propstei St. John the Baptist Church Dortmund.
Its history began in the 14th century near today’s Hansa Square (Hansaplatz). At that time the monks of the Domincan order settled in Dortmund and built the church directly beside their monastery. Since the Middle Ages, numerous art treasures have accumulated there.
