We worth dropping in of you are in Frankfurt. Information on the history of the church in in both German and English. An usually warm cathedral, if you visit on the right day you may be treated to organ music accompanied by a cello. It's lovely to see such a glorious place restored so beautifully.

It was open all day long and you could get inside for a tour. Large and beautiful. Look for the story on the war days.

Nice to go in for a moment of prayer and contemplation, but as landmark / sight, it is nothing special. In Europe the nice church competition is stiff.

it is such a shame that the historic centre of Frankfurt was totally bombed during WWII but now it has been reconstructed and allows the visitor to get a glimpse of how Frankfurt was. The Cathedral of St Bartholomews was built on jewish confiscated land, the prove is that in the museum you can find a burial stone from the... More

The city cathedral is just down from the Romer and is another must see attraction in Frankfurt. It is a beautiful cathedral though not very large. The thing that was either not available when I lived here before or I wasn't allowed to do was the Tower climb. There are a lot of steps so be warned, but the view... More

Even in the winter it is plain to see how meticulously cared for and laid out. Beautiful grounds and buildings are well worth the visit.

Beautiful catholic church that's well maintained and active. We were able to light candles. However, because it was the Christmas Market season we were not able to visit the whole church due to a planned concert. I'll definitely stop by here again on my next visit.

If you are in good shape be sure to climb the tower. It's worth the view. The passage is very tight making it a little uncomfortable when passing people going in the opposite direction. Not recommended if you are claustrophobic.

For the Dom, don't do this if you are claustrophobic. Stairs are very narrow with two way traffic and almost no windows. You don't know when the end is there. You will get a little dizzy because of the spiral stairs. For the 3 euros each it was ok. Views over the city are nice but I recommend the free... More
