Frankfurt Imperial Cathedral (Frankfurter Dom / St. Bartholomäus Cathedral)

Frankfurt Cathedral Germany

There are so many different names for this place so it got a little complicated trying to figure out what to call it on this church. A 15th-century 328-foot tower dominates the skyline and is attached to the 13th-century cathedral that is known for its Wahlkapelle (election chapel). It served as the location for selecting the Holy Roman emperor between the 14th and 18th centuries.

After a terrible fire ripped through the structure in 1867, it was rebuilt, then again after the damage it suffered during World War II it was reconstructed. While visiting the cathedral, consider climbing the 328 steps to the top of the spire to see beautiful views of Frankfurt city.
