  • It is not the best in my opinion, but we are talking about imposing Gothic cathedrals, and this is one of them. I would also point out the body of important dimensions.

  • In Frankfurt most middle ages seems to be building. As you exit the Metro was towering in front of me. For entering the Cathedral inside ticket, so wanted EUR 3 x 3 I noticed people, from the small entrance into the failed. Just climb the narrow staircase and without observation deck at the top, looking down from the window of the iron-barred window with only. I take a still photo. Inside of the Cathedral was worthy of a solemn atmosphere.
