Had a nice look around the church. It was free, welcoming and a nice stop between the Romer and the Modern Art museum. The tower carries a fee, I believe and I think the museum does. Is easy to think that the church is closed. Just look for the Eingang sign and go on in.

What is a visit to Frankfurt without going to this amazing cathedral. Needless to say not match was left following the allied bombing but it is a testament to all that this cathedral continues to provide a central role in the centre of Frankfurt and that it was rebuild with such care. Well worth a visit and will take around... More

Its a very beautiful church, and is located just outside the Dom / Romer metro station. There are stairs to go to the top of the church. It costs 3 Eu per person. The climb is a little tedious. Also, its very narrow at some places. View from the top is good.

Whew! What a walk, but what a view. If you are claustrophobic or not in good shape, stay away. But if you are, the spiral staircase up is worth the walk. The views are amazing!

I'm not quiet interest in architecture style or something. So, it was not taking my breath. Also, there was entrance fee. I'm not sure it is worth for people like me. This take away 1 star. Around the church is good. Good location. : )

A big old church, destroyed in the war, and rebuilt. The old artifacts are there, but the rebuilt inside looks new/rebuilt. There was an organ concert, but the acoustics were terrible. Worth a visit.

For as little at a few euro myself and a friend climbed the old cramped spiral staircase to the top of the cathedral and it was well worth every ounce of breath. The views of the city are amazing when it is clear. We were lucky that there were not many people up the top so we were able to... More
