We really enjoyed this visit. The Cathedral is amazing, and so happy it survived the bombing of Frankfurt at the end of WWII. Some damage but it has been really well preserved and repaired.

St Bartholomew cathedral was the only religious building left standing in 1944. A chilling picture after the WWII bombing displayed outside the cathedral shows it standing. The reconstruction is ongoing, and much work has been done. A visit to the museum is also a must...More
