Roemer Kaisersaal, Frankfurt

3.9
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".

  • Despite the historic significance of the hall, it works cold and empty. It is especially surprising that there is not much going on in it.  more »
  • If you are really interested in the Emperor, you should take a look at the Kaisersaal, just great, historically, We were here with the ex-president Fox from Mexico, he was allowed to register there, in the "Gold Book" of the city of Frankfurt am Main. The former mayor, Mrs Petra Roth, gave the speech at the time.

  • 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.
