After the Second World War, Frankfurt was one of the cities proposed to be the next capital of West Germany. For this reason, the German government commissioned the building of a huge Congress Hall in the city, as a prospective parliament. The round building with four staircases and a dome was built in line with the Paulskirche (St Paul's Church), which was the meeting-place of the first German parliament in 1848. The main hall is a fine example of elegant post-war architecture. After Bonn was made capital, the building was taken over by the Hessischer Rundfunk - the local radio station, which is the public broadcaster for the German state (Bundesland) of Hesse. The stages and platforms were turned into normal floors and installed with sound studios. The Hessischer Rundfunk Orchestra now gives live concerts in the foyer of the main hall.
