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.

  • A fascinating area! In the historical center of the city. Medieval buildings in town hall-style half-timbered houses forms a single architectural historical ensemble, which was restored in 1986 year. Came to the area in the morning when the truck unloaded goods, people were not much, because it was Friday, but it was atmospheric! Yes square named for buildings which were called Romans House!

  • Unfortunately no longer what it was time. For me is not necessarily one of the highlights in Frankfurt, there's better

  • The Romans is the heart of the city. Frankfurt is justly proud of this beautiful plant with the Town Hall. This older style like many people. In Frankfurt, just a district is rebuilt in this way.

  • The Frankfurt Town Hall Square (Römer) with its City Hall and the typical Hessian half-timbered houses is definitely a must-see for tourists, but also a nice place for locals for a walk. This place is located between the city center with all its shops and the river Main, where you can always enjoy the atmosphere, a nice view to the skyscraper landscape of Frankfurt and a walk along the riverside. Actually most of the buildings have been destroyed during WWII by the RAF and USAAF, but have been restored after the war.
  • Es was ein Super Erfahrung! Die St Nicholas kirche es ist wunderschön! Von 1405 bis heute es ist ein großstunden mit Supergeschichte!
  • Amazing old buildings. Frankfurt is in the process of rebuilding the "Frankfurt alt Stadt" Just breath taking
  • Absolutely love this place. I have been coming here since 1979. Last visit was 2015. So beautiful and historic. Many of the facades were rebuilt after 1945, but it remains a center of German history, dating back to Roman times.
  • Old and modern place to hangout at. The colorful architecture makes you feel that you are not at Frankfurt that you traveled to the medieval age

Where to stay in Frankfurt

Hauptwache, Konstablerwache, and the Main river enclose the heart of the city, an area of activity with a range lodging options. The old section of the Sachsenhausen area is also an epicenter of activity with a range of accommodations; it also offers a vibrant nightlife. For short stay, consider lodging in the Bahnhofsviertel area near the main train station, which provides easy access to the city center and to international train transport.
