Churches

The towers of the two places of worship of the Protestant and Catholic parish esnacl characterize the silhouette of the city of Baumholder. In addition to the two large Christian churches, there are numerous smaller congregations in the city, which are mainly visited by the American military members, as well as a New Apostolic congregation.

The community of Baumholder of the New Apostolic Church was founded in 1932.
Initially, private apartments of parishioners, later classrooms of the community school I and the Brühlschule were used to hold the divine services.
The church building “In der Schwärzgrub 27” was handed over to its destination in April 1992, after almost two years of construction.
