  • St. Michael's Cathedral. Bartholomew will delight you from the outside-is a very powerful differentiator in the landscape architecture of Frankfurt. The current church is 5. located at this place. The first church came up from the 9th century. The Church was the place of Coronation of Kings and emperors.
