Not even tourists and those new to Frankfurt can fail to miss the starting point of our historic stroll through the city: With its 95 m high tower rising over Frankfurt city centre, the Cathedral (Dom) can be seen from afar. Its beginnings date back to the year 852. Ten emperors were crowned here between 1562 and 1792. What does it matter that the term ‘Cathedral’ is actually a slight exaggeration, because it was never the home of a bishop…

 

Visitors can climb up its tower between April and October. The Cathedral museum houses treasures such as a Gothic liturgical vestment from 1350 and a gold-plated shining monstrance from 1720.
