Beautiful Inside and Out

There was restoration when we visited but the church was impressive inside and out. I was particularly impressed with the structure outside.

If you feel you can climb the narrow staircase to the top then the view is worth the effort. We are in our late 60's and made it OK and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A great panorama of the city that provides you with an excuse to have a long beer.

It only opens a few hours a day. From the outside, it is not a very attractive cathedral. It is quite small compared to other cathedrals in Germany. I do not recommend visiting it.

A place to visit and especially the tower, lots of steps to go up (and back down) views over Frankfurt are brilliant and some great gargoyles to view on the way up.

It´s an incredibly rich church, with a history that took my breath out. It is practically the heart of Frankfurt, where it all started. I felt humbled by walking inside a place with such history.

The least impressive of the many European cathedrals that I have visited, with a red plaster and stone exterior, the first that I have seen like this. Even the area around it and the walk to the Romer is not great, nor is the link to the river Main.

The place is very convinient by the U bahn to Dom/Romer and it is just very nearby the exit. The church is very tall and big, many things about god, which is overall nice. Overall you can choose to visit this church or cathedral if you are in Frankfurt.

Situated close to Frankfurter Romer, a little difficult to get to as there was so much building going on around the square. Quite austere inside.

Quite a contrast to all the very ornate churches in Rome. This one is relatively bare in comparison but has its own beauty. Certainly it should be on the list of things to do in Frankfurt. What I was blown away by was the size of the organ - it is massive. The tower has 328 steps and is something... More

Even if you're not religious at all, this cathedral is worth a visit. With its ultra high vaulted ceilings and amazing art, it's a wonder of construction from a bygone era. Definitely worth seeing, even if only for a short while.
