Roemer Kaisersaal, Frankfurt

3.8
The Römer is a medieval building in the Altstadt of Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and one of the city's most important landmarks. The Römer is located opposite the Old St. Nicholas church and has been the city hall of Frankfurt for over 600 years. The Römer merchant family sold it together with a second building, the Goldener Schwan, to the city council on March 11, 1405 and it was converted for use as the city hall. The Haus Römer is actually the middle building of a set of three located in the Römerberg .The Römer is not a museum as it is occasionally used by the city for various purposes, for example as a Standesamt or civil registration office; the wedding rooms are located in the first and second floor of the Haus Löwenstein.The former old town quarter between the Römer and St. Bartholomew's Cathedral will be redeveloped as the Dom-Römer Quarter until 2016, including several reconstructions of historical buildings that were destroyed during World War II.ExtensionsThe building complex has been continuously extended over the years, with eventually eleven houses connected to each other, resulting in a rather confusing interior. At the beginning of the 19th century, Frankfurt historian Anton Kirschner remarked that the Frankfurt city hall had "stairs, yards, halls and rooms in a labyrinthian mixture".

  • We wanted to visit the Imperial Hall just after 10am today, which is scheduled to open at 10am 00. When we came, the gate was locked and outside there was a sign attached "Today closed." I want to make it short. After three questions regarding tourism information and two phone calls of the employees working there and statements such as "would have to be open," "we would like to take care of it right away, there is someone coming" (no one came!) and "I can not get away from my place now to To open up, "access – was opened without a word of apology. Rather, it was felt that one had to be sympathetic to the delay of 36 minutes. There are so many rooms to control. May be, but then the process or opening hours need to be adjusted. It was also nice that the very nice – just a few meters away-staff on the first floor did not wonder any further that no visitors were coming. Perhaps the late opening is also the intention to have as long as possible rest in front of visitors. What a pity. By the way, as we walked outside still the sign "Today closed." The hall itself is quite pretty and well worth a visit for 2 euros.

  • Inside the town hall, pay for the ticket from a kind of ATM in the courtyard and climb to the Kaisersal, a room dominated by portraits of the 52 emperors of the Holy Roman Empire. Spectacular.

  • Beautiful
  • Located in the famous Roman square, the city Hall has become one of Frankfurt's most famous attractions and one of the must-see attractions, almost all of which will pass by. Inside was a famous Emperor's Hall, showcasing the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire in the past. If you know something about German history, you must not miss it here.
