Beautiful cathedral in the city center

Beautiful cathedral in the city center. I didn't see it inside, but I liked the architecture. Good if you are sightseeing.

We visited the Cathedral first thing in the morning. It opens earlier but the museums for the church don't open until 11. We toured the church on our own first from about 10:30-11, and then visited the attached museum and the smaller exhibit across the street. We had bought the 2-day Museum pass, which we found to be a great... More

Beautiful building and one of very few that survived the Second World War. Nice view from the viewing deck. Really worth visiting when you're in Frankfurt.

A must see. You can see the steeple from many locations across the river and it is very easy to walk to.... A block away from the Romer area. Incredible restoration work, a regal church.

Inside of church was pretty but the view from the tower is what is best about this place (3 euros). My only caveat is that climbing the tower stairs might not be for you if you are very tall, wide or unhealthy. It is a small twisting staircase with a lot of steps.

This church is made of modern concrete and has been painted in a way to look like Roman blocks and mortar. The cathedral was destroyed by fire in 1867, and then was crushed again in WW2 but reopened in 1953. The church is free. There is a charge for the museum, and a charge for the 300+ step tower climb.... More

Something different at the shore of the River, this beautiful Cathedral stands as a symbol of Frankfurt. The surroundings are beautiful and the views are unique, specially since you are still in the middle of a modern city. The history around the building is extensive with some of the most important german history events happened around the area, from coronations... More

Yes it's another cathedral but this one is easy to navigate and some really old pieces from eh 13th century even through it's been rebuilt you still see the history. The tower is being renovated at the moment. Worth a look, we took a break from a big walk and enjoyed the cool interior and enlisting to organ practice.

Not a cathedral, but Frankfurt's principal church, used for imperial coronations for more than 400 years. Splendid altar pieces and striking medieval stone carved wall monuments, like UK brasses in three dimensions. A fine modern oil painting of the Crucifixion is at the west end. In the cloisters there is a display of vestments and altar plate - there is... More
