Unbeknown to many, Frankfurt has numerous areas which are worth photographing. Roemer is where the Town Hall is situated, very close to the River Main, and it is basically a large and picturesque square. Restaurants around here naturally touristy but but St Michael's (Protestant) Church, although very plain and small in comparison to many German churches, it within Roemer and... More

Those buildings are great and shows how is the classical architecture. Take your time at the plaza, have some coffee and if you want make some pictures, walk around for different angles. Best free option in Frankfurt am Main.

The square is only 2 minutes walk from the beautiful river. The buildings are stunning (keep in mind these are not the original buildings, they are relatively new built to look like the ones that originally stood there) very little to do at the square only take pictures but absolutely a must see. The main shopping area is just a... More

The Roemer was completely destroyed by bombing during World War II, but the people of Frankfurt, to their credit, restored several half-timbered houses as well as the town hall. At present work is taking place on a mixed-use neighbourhood adjacent to the Roemer that should look very nice.

Was in Frankfurt for a short transit and paid a visit to this square. It was a nice change from the concrete jungle that's everywhere in Frankfurt. There was some sort of construction going on and that did detract a bit from the experience. This square is easily accessible by subway or tram. Lots of eateries close by (bring your... More

I was in Frankfurt and visited Romerberg two months ago. It was still a beautiful open square with its old town facades. Now it is a construction site. They are building a museum of some sort in the middle of the square. I do not care what care they take with the facade of the new museum, it has destroyed... More

the only place I visited since I was there for one day, and it makes sense to spend time here rather than anywhere else in the city.

Among the modern high-rises of Frankfurt, you'll find this quaint and beautiful historical centre. The buildings are stunning, and the area has a great atmosphere. There are several places to eat or enjoy a glass of apfelwein (apple wine, Frankfurt's famous drink). Definitely a must-see for any visit to Frankfurt.

Short walk along the river (10mins) from the train station, or you can take the trolley for a small amount of money. The culture in this area is so rich. There are a few museums that offer tours...keep in mind they are closed on Sundays. Many shops, places to eat, a Starbucks, and street vendors. It was an amazing place... More
