Römer, Frankfurt
(4.4/5 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.

  • I visited the square on the occasion of the Christmas markets, is very characteristic. Despite being a reconstruction of old buildings, the atmosphere is really impressive.

  • Was just to prepare for the Christmas market. Cannot enjoy the Christmas markets of Germany but it was the appearance of the building where vestiges of the old firm left from the Town Hall square minutes River is a nice contrast from the opposite bank to the skyscrapers of Frankfurt's financial district and near the old town.

  • Very nice, especially in the evening on Christmas Eve. A huge number of beautiful tents with gingerbread, mulled cider, toys and other things. A lot of people play music. Simply stunning fair here! Not Christmas time here, think too nicely. The old square.

  • 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!
  • Super touristy! Taking some photos and look and done, next one. Interesting buildings though.
