Built at the beginning of the 20th century, the Herz-Jesu-Kirche (Sacred Heart Church) in Koblenz is one of the most important Neo-Romanesque sacred buildings in Germany. The church was built from 1900 to 1903 to the plans of Ludwig Becker, who would go on to be the Mainz Cathedral master builder. The Herz-Jesu-Kirche was consecrated on 19th May 1904. The church was severely damaged in an air raid in 1944 and was completely burnt out. It was rebuilt from 1950 - 1953 after the Second World War.
In 2011, a faulty connection in the power supply led to a fire in the sacristy. The fire damaged the sacristy and covered the nave and other rooms in soot, leaving the church unusable for several months.
