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.

  • It is the nicest touristic place in Frankfurt. It was completely destroyed during 2WW. The reconstruction is according as it was before. It is worth to go there, plenty of shops, local restaurants and...  more »
  • Extension of inner-city building behind the Romans succeeded very, but urbanity is missing, so that it doesn't feel like a museum. I.e., there are still restaurants, cafes or bars missing. It is not understandable why so many areas are made available to the city. What a pity.

  • Really a great place to experience a lively atmosphere in person. Standing in the center surrounded by the city hall, Römerberg, Lutheran Church and numerous eating places. There is such a lively energy surrounding this area that makes you smile and joyous.
  • The old town square has a unique atmosphere as it is an old piece of art in the modern surroundings of Frankfurt. Fun place to hang out at evenings and it is great spot for your morning coffee.
