I was visiting Frankfurt starting in the Romer square and found this church located on one end. It is a medieval church that survived the bombings in WWII. From here is a short walk to the Frankfurt Cathedral.

This is a beautiful church in the Romerberg area. It's near the Frankfurter Romer an other beautiful buildings, as well as near numerous souvenir shops and eateries. It's located in an area that's great for relaxing and taking in the beauty of the area.

This church which in some ways is more chapel than church is right of the Romer plaza and is well worth a stop. It was the first church I visited on my recent trip to Frankfurt and reminded me off the the awe I have experienced going from church to church even when the church is simple and basic.

Frankfurt is not a very old city, but the inner part, the old town is beautiful to see. I really liked the colours of the buildings, as well as the sharp tower of the church. This church is in the main square, so once you get there it is very easy to walk around and discover the most important parts... More

Located at Römerburg Platz...a popular town square popular with locals and tourists alike, St. Nikolas Kirche is a nice example of 13th century German technology...well appointed and photogenic. Take a look inside, you'll be surprised.

This little church located at the Römerberg square can be seen by any visitor coming to the heart of old Frankfurt. Though first built in the 12th century, its looks are predominantly of 15th. And, amazingly, it was little damaged during WWII. Sadly, it was closed when I visited, so I did not see its interiors, but even outside it... More

It's a nice church right in the main tourist part of the city. It's not real big but it's nice. It's small enough that you won't spend much time.

This delightful little Protestant [Lutheran] church is in the old part of the city and unlike the buildings on its left was not badly damaged during WW II. The interior exhibits simple beauty and is not highly ornamented. I was surprised how small it was inside.

Nicholas Church is basic and unadorned ... which I personally think makes it a pleasant change from the opulent churches and cathedrals that are spread across Europe.
