Römer, Frankfurt

(4.5/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Frankfurt holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Römer and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The square in the Romer is the heart of the city! There is the Town Hall, an old church and other old buildings, including souvenir shops, cafés, restaurants and others in old buildings. Very close to museums, access to the Cathedral (Dom), access to the river Main, and still near the Zeil, most popular Avenue for shopping malls. Has access by Metro or by car (parking directly under the square). So can not miss for those who know Frankfurt for the first time. In December the square is filled for the traditional Christmas market, and is even more charming.

  • Frankfurt for atmospheric celebration of the attraction. The square had the orchestra playing when we were there and the atmosphere was happy it. Souvenir shops can be found here. Too bad that the rest of the old architecture is not preserved in Frankfurt.

  • Can't appreciate the impact of the buildings when it is hosting a Weinachsmarkt in the square. Adds a very festive feel to the whole place though.
  • Great looking building with a really nicely carved out balcony. Hitler was up there to give speeches 3 times ,on his 2nds last visit, they cut his microphone so he would have to yell.
  • Straight from the cruise we went towards the romer square .... the sight was amazing not to describe but soak it in really worfth a visit
  • Charming square. A few nice cafes around to chill. Made better with street buskers
  • Definitely visit this neat little place. Odd colored houses and street performers can be spotted!
