Apart from Romer, going to the top of the cathedral tower was probably one of the highlights of my short trip to Frankfurt. I was travelling with my boyfriend and we climbed to the top of the cathedral together. It was tough coz it's really high but totally worth it and really fun if you are not alone ! They... More

Nice big tall impressive church. Enjoyable experience, we spent quite a lot of time inside. The organs looked impressive, it probably sounds great when it is being played during Mass.

We've seen many churches around the world, and this one was unlike any other. The rose color of the walls was so different than any other church. To see this among the modern buildings in Frankfurt was also nice. They've done a wonderful job renovating. You can easily see this church in 30 minutes or less (and could also easily... More

This is a stunning cathedral in the original historic part of Frankfurt. The vast searing arches are astonishing, while the individual side chapels hold a host of well lit and beautiful alter pieces.

This is one of the great Gothic churches in Germany. Since it had been recently renovated, very interesting to visit. This Cathedral (Dom in German) also played a big role in the appointmen (inthronisation) of former Kaiser. If you are in Frankfurt, go and see.

Gorgeous cathedral that is in walking distance of Romer and the Old Pedestrian Bridge. A lovely stop on a walk around the area.

A great big cathedral. Worth a view. It's not easily photographed from the outside due to close proximity to other buildings.

Currently it appears to be under some renovation with parts of the exterior hidden by scaffolding but do't let that stop you from admiring it both inside and out. It is free to enter unless you wish to climb up to the top of the tower which I did not do. Inside, like most churches is very peaceful and calm... More
