Kaiserdom Sankt Bartholomäus

Recommendation by Lemi

From 1356 to 1792, Frankfurt Cathedral’s Wahlkapelle (election chapel) saw the selection of Holy Roman emperors. After 1562, it even became the coronation site of ten imperial rulers! The red-sandstone property is distinguishable by its 95-meter high tower. Climb 328 steps to get to the observation platform, which grants you scenic views of the city’s skyline! Drop by the on-site Dommuseum, as well, to peruse the church’s collection of liturgical objects.
