Of the 3 churches I went though, this was the smallest. It was still quite beautiful though. Impressively it was only church in Frankfurt to survive that only received minor damage in World War 2 from allied bombings. I'm not sure why I don't have many close up shots from outside here, but I do … Continue reading Frankfurt Cathedral
These are various shots that should have been included in the other posts but got missed because I had so many darn pictures!
