The Imperial Cathedral Kaiserdom is of great importance for history and culture not only of Frankfurt, but also of the whole of Germany. It used to be a place for the coronation of emperors and kings of Germany. The monument remained virtually untouched during World War II. Currently, the cathedral houses the famous Maria-Schlaf-Altar, which was created in the XV century. The 80-meter tower, which was built at the end of the 15th century is also impressive. The gothic chapel adjacent to the cathedral houses a museum, which features unique exhibits showing the rich history of the cathedral.
