The Cathedral is situated by the Romerberg, it's hard to miss it due to its 95m high tower. The Frankfurt Dom was originally a Carolingian chappel and in the 16th century it was "promoted" to Cathedral because it hosted the coronation ceremonies for Holy Roman Kings. However, it is an honorary title, that lasts till nowadays, since it has never been an episcopal church.

The church we visit nowadays is no longer the original one, since part of it was destroyed by a fire on the 19th century, reconstructed in neo-gothic style and later destroyed again in WWII bombings.

Address: Domplatz 1, 60311 Frankfurt am Main
