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.

  • Frankfurt is an amazing town and a lot different to what I was lead to believe. The main square was tranformed from having a massive festival and carnival one day to open space but still having a buzz...  more »
  • Nice to spend some time down here. Plenty of outdoor café and eateries. Interesting to contrast the old vs new architecture of the FRA skyline.  more »

  • I had a lot of fun here. One of the highlights of my German Cycling Tour. This is right along the main river where the Main Radweg (Main River Bikeway) is. I love the character of the buildings. The food is good, there is lots of shopping, and the bridge going over the river is right there with all the love locks.
  • A very large and comprehensive food market composed of many different vendors. You can eat at the different small restaurants, but food to go or just buy ingredients. Well organized, friendly workers (lots of food samples!) and reasonable prices. If you’re walking around Frankfurt stop by and check it out!
  • If you travel to Frankfur you have to go this part of the city. Here is old town. Anicent and beautiful buildngs. You feel very good in that place.
  • Spectacular sctructure! This is just like Disney's fairytales
  • 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.
