This is the largest religious building in the city and despite it being called a Cathedral, it is not one. English translation calls it a Cathedral. It has much history and is the third church to be built on the same site (680 first build - 2nd build between 1869to1880 - After the fire of 1867 and then 1950-1953 - After WWII bombings. Excavations have identified a building on the site as far back to the seventh century (680 / 794 / 852 building / updates). After its reconstructed in the 1950's it had (interior) restoration carried out in the 1990s. The Gothic tower had external renovation work carried out between 2000 to 2009. It is worth reading up about it's history in more detail before you visit to fully appreciate what your looking at and it's history and importance. Free to enter.

I am just going to repeat what everyone else says. Unlike many cathedrals in the this part of Germany, this has many gothic altarpieces and interesting artworks.

Really wonderful cathedral. You can walk in the front door to visit the cathedral itself for free. You can also go to the back of the cathedral and pay €3s to go up the tower. I would warn you that it is a lot of steps and it gets very narrow but the view is amazing at the top!

This cathedral is currently under development on it's exterior but that doesn't take anything away from it's pure splendour. With lovely terracotta brickwork and a main steeple with a clock face to each side it's truly majestic. The intricate architecture is phenomenal and great photos can be gained from all sides if you walk around it. Inside it's giant pillars adorn the whole area with a beautiful altar and huge glass windows and gold leaf ornaments and statues make this a place not to be missed.

The dom has been lovingly reconstructed since World War II, but what we found fascinating were the number of art treasures that are now present.

Maybe it’s not technically a Cathedral, and it has been extensively rebuilt & restored after WW2, but it is impressive nonetheless.
Find the little hut outside the church to buy tickets to head up the tower, where you’ll find some excellent views of Frankfurt.

Beautiful church at the center of Frankfurt's downtown city. Surrounded by a nice neighborhood contains many good things worth being seen. Please avoid the entrance during the celebrations especially on Sundays and during well-known religious holidays.
