You can see the Cathedral of St. Bartholemew from very long distance and no way you will skip it without visiting. Its beating from outside and inside. A symbol of unity during 19th century constructed since 600 years ago. 10th November 2018

We arrived for the 3 o'clock tour only to find out that you had to speak German. You couldn't even tag along if you didn't. Across the plaza there is a small museum (included in the price of admission) in a basement with items such...More

I saw it from outside. But it was so big and beautiful. There was a viewing place next to it. If you come Frankfurt, this is the first place that you should see.

This Cathedral is known as the Dom. The cathedral survived the bombings of WW2 unlike the surrounding area which has been beautifully restored. Well worth a visit for the beautiful Art & history.

A quick and inexpensive way to get your bearings. The stone spiral staircase takes you first to the main building then up the spire. The 360 panorama at the top takes in all of the city with lots to view...

As one of few remaining standing buildings in 1944, it’s seen a lot so it’s worthy to stop and see how it’s still a place of worship in modern times.

This is a beautiful medieval Cathedral and it's amazing that is still stands in spite of the fact that most of Frankfurt was flattened during the war. You can pay a very modest fee to visit the cathedral and take the tour of relics house...More

They do have Mass a few times a day (there's a schedule in the front), but I don't think it's in English. Hope that helps.

The church probably publishes that information.
