Why locals love it

The Kaiserdom Cathedral gives an amazing display of medieval architecture. The cathedral consists of a 95m high tower. The Gothic look of the tower is beautiful, and the small intricate designs carved into it add more depth to its character. To see all this you must climb over 300 steps and reach the top. The view from the top is worth the effort.

Why you should visit it

you get an awesome 360° view over the city of Frankfurt. On sunny days you will be able to see the Taunus mountains.
Beware: it's very high and narrow, so nothing for claustrophobic people! also, the climb is really exhausting.

Special tip

During worship, please don't disturb the prayer. On Friday morning, the Cathedral is always open for sightseeing only from 1 pm onwards.
