The Basics

Built from striking red sandstone and dominated by a 312-foot (95-meter) tower, the beautifully ornate Frankfurter Dom was heavily damaged by a fire in 1867 and by bombing in World War II. Today, happily, it has been restored to its former glory, and its soaring tower—accessible by stairs—offers panoramic views of the city. Frankfurter Dom features on numerous sightseeing tours, including river cruises, bike tours, and walking tours of the city’s Aldstadt.
