Römer, Frankfurt

4.4
The 15th-century Römer 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.

    It is quaint and the old part of the city. So you have to go by and take a look at the architecture and nearby attractions, but once you take a couple of pictures there isn't much here except a bunch ...  more »

    Very pretty square with the German tradition. Excellent place for memories however given the place a bit more expensive.

  • 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.
  • Brilliant building in Frankfurt. Should be on your to see list if you're in the city. Near a underground station.
  • Lovely place in the city centre, the medioeval hauses were rebuilted but in a way it seems they're real and you can feel the ancient spirit of the place. There are a lot of lovely restaurant nearby and a touris office and gift shops.
  • Good place for people who want to sit in some cafe and resterant but not recommand to people who want to see and take photo here. It's not worth for it.
  • This is the beautiful part of Frankfurt. Several souvenier shops and tipical german restaurants.

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.
