4.2
Cathedral of St. Bartholomew (Dom St. Bartholomaus), one of the finest examples of Gothic style in Germany, opened its doors in the 14th century. Built on the foundation of an even older church, the cathedral features a restored, 95 m (311 ft) tall spire with great views from the top. 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. Inside, you can see the supposed skull fragment of St. Bartholomew.The museum in the cloister houses a collection of artifacts discovered nearby.
