The Dutch-Walloon Church in Hanau is a historic church building located in the city center of Hanau, Germany. It was built in the early 17th century as a double church for the Dutch and Walloon Protestant communities who had settled in Hanau.

During World War II, the church was heavily damaged and only the smaller Dutch part was rebuilt. The ruins of the Walloon part were preserved as a memorial to the war’s destruction. Today, visitors can see the ruins and learn about the history of the church and its role in Hanau’s Protestant community.

The Dutch-Walloon Church is also famous for its impressive pipe organ, which was built by the renowned organ builder Johann Heinrich Stumm in 1766. The organ has undergone several restorations over the years and remains an important cultural treasure in the region.

The church is open to visitors for guided tours and special events, and is still used for religious services today by the Dutch Protestant community in Hanau.
