Must see · Architectural Building · Landmark
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. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Frankfurt using our trip planner.

  • Traditional Old Town, rebuild after the WW2. Wonderful place to stroll and drink beer or wine. Good restaurants and nice churches.
  • It’s one of the more prominent tourist attractions in the city. Conveniently located in the center of the city, the streets are paved with cobblestone and the Römer is a set of medieval buildings, nestled in the middle of the Römer square. The streets are lined on both sides with touristy restaurants, cafes and souvenirs shops. During Christmas time there is even a Christmas market in the center of the square.
