  • Beautiful cathedral! The most beautiful you can visit in Frankfurt. But make sure you go there before you visit Cologne, otherwise the cathedral will just be another "church"  more »
  • The Cathedral is required to visit. Reminiscent of a cathedral in Strasbourg. Inside there is a Museum of the history of the Cathedral. For the money you can also climb to the top, where offers a good view of the city.

  • The Cathedral is prettier on the outside to inside, is very sober in decoration. The ascent to the tower to pay it, but it is worth when you get up (but have bad, 317 steps in a spiral staircase), spectacular views of the city
