We didn't go inside, but this beautiful structure is quite imposing from the outside. It's located around the corner from the Romerberg area and about a block (walk straight) or two from the waterfront of the Rhein River. It's in an area that almost has an alley-like feel to it, so I'd be careful about walking there at night.

I read that some people have been disappointed by a visit to this museum so felt I should leap in and offer my review. The Dom of Frankfurt is such a very important building both historically and spiritually. It is the former site of coronation for the Emperors of Germany and has a wealth of memorials, baroque and simpler on... More

This building was reduced to bare walls as a result of allied bombing in WWII. It has been restored and still functions as a church. We attended a "Concert Evensong" in the building in May. Acoustics for choral singing are not the best.

I went there by an accident - I was visiting the Cathedral and I saw a museum sign. I decided to go inside and I don't regret it. There're many exhibits with descriptions in both German and English.

I expected more about the history of the church building and happenings of the church. Not worth the entrance fee. They should do more with it.

I had a museum Surfer 2 day pass, so I visited as many museums as I could to get the money's worth. Very small, interesting artifacts, but all in German. I enjoy the church much more!

Pictures are allowed inside as long as there is no flash. This is good to know, because you will want to take pictures. Inside, you will find items from the church treasury such as papal robes, communion sets, candle sticks and altar pieces, many of which are gold and laden with precious jewels. This is a small museum, but worth... More
