If you're near the Romer, stop over and see this church. No charge to walk in, there is a small fee to climb the tower and for the small museum.

Climb to the tower is not for everyone, the stairwell is spiral and quite narrow, so if you're not in shape or claustrophobic, be aware. On the other hand, the views from up there is absolutely amazing and it's definitely worth the climb and the meagre €3 for the ticket.

Amazing Gothic Cathedral in the heart of Frankfurt, easily accessible by public transportation or park in the garage underneath about a block away. We visit this site with every new guest we host and it's always a hit. The entryway has a museum or simple stop and light a prayer candle. You can often times catch a the choir singing... More

This is a beautiful cathedral that is located in the center of town on the square. It is made from limestone and a significant history. I would recommend a guide to get the full story of this church. It was subjected to allot of damage during WWII but some artifacts were preserved and the church was rebuilt after WWII.

I visited the cathedral on a Sunday right before mass. It was buzzing and although it said no tourists many were quietly walking about. I went outside to do the walk up to the top tower. While the climb took longer than I thought, the view was awesome and totally worth it.

It is the largest religious building in the city. Beautiful place, incredible interiors, many visitors and crowded but worth to see.

It is close to the city center, and next to the river. Unfortunately you can not see the whole cathedral from the river, but still nice.

This place is not extraordinary, but it has this special idea that you can go up and view the whole town. Not free tho.

We like to visit cathedrals everywhere we go and this was no exception. While we didn't spend too much time admiring the inside of the cathedral, we did spend most of the time climbing up the 300+ winding staircase to the observation deck. We felt the climb to be never ending and forget not to mention how tight the stairs... More
