I am just going to repeat what everyone else says. Unlike many cathedrals in the this part of Germany, this has many gothic altarpieces and interesting artworks.

Frankfurt Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew, is an architectural masterpiece that should not be missed by anyone visiting Frankfurt. Located in the heart of the city, this stunning Gothic cathedral is a testament to the ingenuity and craftsmanship of its builders. Upon entering the cathedral, one is immediately struck by the soaring heights of the nave, which is supported by a series of graceful arches. The stained glass windows, which depict scenes from the Bible, are a particularly striking feature, casting a warm glow over the interior of the cathedral. In addition to its architectural beauty, the cathedral is also home to a number of important works of art, including several statues and paintings by notable artists. The altar, in particular, is a work of art in its own right, adorned with intricate carvings and gold leaf. Overall, Frankfurt Cathedral is a must-see for anyone interested in architecture or art. Its beauty and grandeur are truly breathtaking, and it serves as a testament to the enduring power of faith. Whether you are a tourist or a local, I highly recommend paying a visit to this stunning cathedral
An oldest Catholic Church in the center of the City Frankfurt. With a beautiful architecture so spacious and good ventilation. The Cathedral is the only building that survived from bombing attack in the second world War. The statues and the station of the cross and all the interior of the church is very beautiful. So refreshing and spiritually refreshing. A place worth visiting.
Not the most beautiful or impressive cathedral in Europe, but well worth a visit. It certainly has one of the more interesting organs around, with the organ pipes being all-over. It is good that the dome is very regularly used for its intended cause, which however means that tourists need to time their visit well if they just want to have a look, without participating in a church service.
Gothic architecture at its finest, I couldn’t get enough of any view of Frankfurt that includes this amazing cathedral! The interior is not as impressive, but still beautiful. In the entrance you ‘ll also read about the church and old town during WWII, so interesting. I don’t know if any visits up the tower are permitted, but I ‘ll love to climb up there next time I’m in Frankfurt!
Very iconic cathedral - due to its importance as a former election and coronation church of the Holy Roman Empire. Built with red dark stone, this 95 meters tall building is a major dominant of ''old'' Frankfurt. The interior is decorated with a beautiful shade of red that is not so typical for cathedrals and that is what makes this place quite unique in my eyes. There are some nice pieces of art, furniture and decorations, although it is quite a simple building, and there are definitely more impressive cathedrals around Germany. I appreciated the stained glass windows with pastel colors and I was impressed by the floorplan of the cathedral, as it is as wide as long, which I didn't notice until I was walking inside the transepts. Cathedral (Dom) is wheelchair accessible and located just a few meters from the U-Bahn stop of the same name. The entry is free, however there is a museum located in the other part of the cathedral and requires purchasing a ticket. Great addition to the cathedral tour is the climb to its tower and seeing the Frankfurt skyline! Interesting fact: It was pretty much the last standing building after the 1944 bombarding of Frankfurt - that and more you can read at the entrance to the cathedral. Visited in July 2022.
