Take a tour of St. Bartholomew Cathedral in Frankfurt, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. Frankfurt's famous institutions have made it a European and World center for over a thousand years. The ancient St. Bartholomew's Cathedral is most certainly counted among those institutions. Holy Roman Emperors, and then German Imperials, were crowned here for over 200 years. The cathedral was reconstructed after being damaged in WWII. Interestingly, it has never served as the seat of a bishop. Its role in German and world history has made St. Bartholomew's one of Europe's most important historical sites.
