Frankfurt is a vibrant and easily navigable city. Public transport is reliable and easily accessible. Walking from the city centre to Frankfurter Romer and the river, cross the bridge which reminds one of the Brooklyn Bridge in the early morning and visiting the Cathedral was my favourite experience.

I could see the Cathedral tower thru the hotel window, but the internal beauty is really magnificent.

The ascent to the top of the tower, some 324 steps, is well worth it. The views are phenomenal and if you're over 25 you can feel very proud that you're able to make It!

We did not pay to go inside so all I can review is the spectacular architecture as seen from the outside. It's truly a magnificent church to behold and is massive compared to the small, old buildings that surround it. I was a little annoyed that the city would allow buildings to be constructed in such small proximity to this... More

Great views, but it takes some work getting to the top (lots of small stairs). You will get wonderful view of the city and feel a sense of accomplishment when you get to the top.

Unlike some famous cathedral, this majestic cathedral stands tall next to the Maine river. Its interior decor is simply brick. Its organ is arranged in a wavy way that made me want to stay and listen to it. Although I wasn't able to but can imagine the beautiful music produced by this organ.

Apart from the history associated with the cathedral, given that it was the site of kings elections, and dating since the 14th century, and apart from being a location of seeing a breathtaking view from its tower, this cathedral is brilliantly illuminated at night. I have seen cathedrals all over Europe, but this one is a dazzling masterpiece when it... More

Dedicated to Saint Bartholomew, the cathedral dates back as far as 1356 when it was a Roman Empire collegiate church - where emperors and kings were elected. It stands as the biggest and tallest cathedral located right at the center of Frankfurt Am Main, the spire being 95 meters tall. It Is a main symbol of the city of Frankfurt... More

This cathedral took my breathe away. From the outside it attracts you, and inside it mesmerizes you. And i have seen many cathedrals but nothing like that.

A true place of worship for Roman Catholic to visit. I spoke to one of the hospitality volunteers and she was helpful in understand the origination of the first church at this location. The first church dates back to AD 680. You can see the outline of the original church in the floor near the back of the sanctuary. It... More
