Cathedral of St. Bartholomew

With its 95 meter high tower rising over the city centre, this Cathedral is hard to miss. Consecrated in the name of St Bartholomew in 1239, this cathedral was officially chosen to serve as the electoral site for kings of the Holy Roman empire in 1356. Ten imperial coronations took place here between 1562 and 1792.

Do & See

Frankfurt am Main, the bustling metropolis in the heart of Europe, is known for its unusual contrasts: historical attractions, as the Römerberg with its half-timbered houses, the Emperors' Cathedral or St Paul's Church, are just a stone's throw away from the unique skyline, extraordinary cultural offers, a real shopping eldorado and numerous events throughout the year, which make Frankfurt the perfect destination for an exciting city break.
