In addition to the very interesting images and sculptures within the cathedral, you can't lose the opportunity of going up to the tower. Is a hard way up; seriously, if you are claustrophobic or don't have the best condition, maybe you should avoid it, because the stairs are hard. However, just for only 3€ you get the best view of...

Historical and beautiful. However to visit the museum, one has to pay euro4 per person. Location is close to old town and there is a "U" station next door. Convenient.

Nice Gothic Architecture. Inside not that interesting as some of the spanish or british cathedrals. But the structure from outside is tall and beautiful.

The highest chi-arch in Frankfurt. It is made of red stoned. Unlike churches in Rome with their numerous paintings and painted ceiling, this one is more sober. But it is interesting to visit. You can walk up the tower for the view of the city. The access is outside to the right and behind the cathedral access. Ticket costs 3€... More

This is a lovely cathedral but around the back outside is a tower with great views all over the city. It's a long climb on narrow spiral steps but well worth the exhaustion.
