Romer, Frankfurt

4.4
The 15th-century Romer has served as Frankfurt's city hall for nearly 600 years. The building's major tourist attraction is its best-known room--Emperor Hall--on the second floor. This was the setting for the coronation banquets during the Holy Roman Empire. One of the city's major landmarks, this medieval building once belonged to the wealthy Romer family. They sold it to the city in 1405. The entire three-story complex occupies about 10,000 sq m (108,000 sq ft), with nine buildings encircling six courtyards. The front of the building, featuring the city hall's main entrance, faces a large public square. You can see a vast collection of 19th-century portraits of emperors here. Look especially for works by renowned artist Eduard Von Steinle. Plan my day in Frankfurt using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Frankfurt is an amazing town and a lot different to what I was lead to believe. The main square was tranformed from having a massive festival and carnival one day to open space but still having a buzz...  more »

  • Absolutely cracking building that should be on the tick list for anybody who is visiting Frankfurt and happens to have any sort of camera on their person. I would say this is one of the most photogenic buildings in the city. Not just the big picture, but some of the small details as well. Most of the square is full of old school buildings too which only adds to the charm.
  • Cool topp are 18th century germany
  • Beautiful looks like you are inside a fairy tale when you walk around the architecture and old houses are incredible .... absolutely for visit.
  • Decent place to tour in Germany. Buildings look interesting and lots of restaurants and shops nearby to look around.
  • I had a lot of fun here. One of the highlights of my German Cycling Tour. This is right along the main river where the Main Radweg (Main River Bikeway) is. I love the character of the buildings. The food is good, there is lots of shopping, and the bridge going over the river is right there with all the love locks.
