Jim Morrison’s Eerie Church Photos Frankfurt, Germany 1968

I recently came across this amazing photo of Jim Morrison standing at a church pulpit and thought I would do a little research on it.

The photo was taken on September 14, 1968 at the 800 year-old former chapel of the city council Alte Nikolaikirche (Saint Nicholas) in Romer Square, Frankfurt, Germany.  The Doors were in town to perform outdoors for a German TV show and while strolling around Frankfurt’s old town, Morrison found the door to the church open and took a few photos including this one standing at the altar.

Morrison also had his photo taken in front of the 15th century gravestone of the first mayor of Frankfurt, Siegrfired zum Paradies.
