The spire survived a fire in 1867 and a fire during World War II that burned the interior. The building was reconstructed in the 1950s.

  • 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.

  • Really wonderful cathedral. You can walk in the front door to visit the cathedral itself for free. You can also go to the back of the cathedral and pay €3s to go up the tower. I would warn you that...

  • 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.
