Culture in Frankfurt

Frankfurt is home to many gothic masterpieces, such as the Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew which was constructed in the 14th or 15th century, on the site of a church from Merovingian times. St Paul’s Church is a national historic monument in Germany with great political symbolism, as it was the seat of the first democratically elected parliament in 1849. The Opera House is also worth a visit - it was rebuilt in the 1970s after sustaining heavy damage during World War II and is now one of the city’s most beautiful public buildings.
