Religion

Himmelsfeder 633324 web r k b by rosel eckstein pixelio de

Frankfurt, as a multicultural metropolis, is home to a great variety of religious confessions. Freedom of religion is included as an integral part of German Basic Law (Grundgesetz) in Article 4, which guarantees that everybody may practice her/his religion, act according to its laws and propagate it without harm. Thus everybody is free to choose her/his religion, and to change confessions and convert to another religion. Moreover, no one is compelled to follow any religious denomination at all. Nevertheless, freedom of religion is restricted if other basic rights and laws are being violated.

You can find a description of the major religious communities in Frankfurt on the following two websites: City of Frankfurt website and Wikipedia.

The House of Silence (Haus der Stille), Westend Campus

In 2009/10 the House of Silence was inaugurated on the Westend Campus only a few metres away from the Lecture Hall Building (Hörsaalzentrum) next to the student dorms. It is an open space that invites students and members of the university to a few moments of silence. The house is meant to be a place of cultural and religious dialogue in a university defined by plurality.
