Night owl meditations

Listen to sounds and words. Form a picture before your eyes: watch and dream, wax and wane, rest and race, seek and find.  

A special form of Christian meditation was created at the Frauenkirche together with a jazz pianist – the so-called night owl meditations. Music instils calmness in the visitors and contemplative texts invite attentive listening. 

These special readings have taken place since 2002 and are held each Friday during one summer month (usually June or July) at 11.11 p.m. in the Lower Church.

Further offers of meditation are featured on special occasions (Night of the churches, festivals in the city).
