Easter Special #2: Maria, Königin des Friedens by Gottfried Böhm

During Easter, I took time to discover the hidden concrete sanctuaries of Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

On Easter sunday, we drove by Neviges and had a look at their church of pilgrimage “Maria, Königin des Friedens” built in brutalist style by the German architect Gottfried Böhm in 1968. Böhm’s construction represents the idea of the church as a tent for the travelling believers and an open marketplace of the world.
