“As far as they go”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

This is certainly an unimpressive cathedral. Quite simple. It's worth popping into but one shouldn't plan on too much time there.

“A landmark in Frankfurt am Main”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Cathedral of St. Batholomew dated from the 14th century and it was seriously damaged during the World War II by the allied forces. But it is one of the few buildings that its structure had survived. It was rebuilt in the 50s.

The building is full of history and it was home to the crown processes of emperors from the Holy Roman Empire and later of the elected emperors from Germany.

The building is impressive and can be visited inside for free. You must pay a small fee if wanting to go to the top, which has some 60 something steps. My husband and I didn´t enter because there was a wedding going on when we visit and we didn´t want to disturb.

“Not at all a must-see but nice if you are in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Unfortunately, most of the cathedral was destroyed in WWII, so most of what you are seeing inside is recent. However, the quality is great and the place is lovely. Worth seeing if you in downtown Frankfurt, otherwise not worth a side trip.
