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.

  • This is what I expected to see when I came to Germany. There are some really cute shops in the area - not all touristy shops. It wasn't as busy as I was expecting it to be in October, which was fine. ...  read more »
  • Very picturesque place, definitely worth a visit. Very close to downtown Frankfurt. There was an opera singer when we visited who was in the square, and made the experience nice. 
  • As it was supposed to be beautiful Frankfurt before the bombing that razed to the ground! This beautiful square with its fairytale buildings, the Church and the Town Hall is all that remains of its past ...

  • Super touristy! Taking some photos and look and done, next one. Interesting buildings though.
  • Cool for pictures. Visit the museum souvenir shop. Reasonable prices and support some charities.
  • All these building have been standing for more than a decade. They sure have lots of history and the atmosphere is great.
  • still like it after hundreds of time visits. the restaurants there are not more expensive than other restaurants. so i like drinking a coffee there or having a meal, looknig over the plaza
  • A really good place to take photos in Frankfurt and contrasts really well with the modern builds of the city
