It is really interesting to see such a nice old place, right next to the skyscrapers. Worth to see it, you can also have a dinner or a coffee at one of the many restaurants. You can reach it easily even from the river or from the main street, but you can take metro line (U-bahn) as well. Don't miss... More

The old city center. Unfortunately a lot of it has been destroyed during the war, but they are rebuilding it at the moment.

The square is one of the few truly authentic old places in Frankfurt, with the Imperial cathedral (Peter und Paul, don't miss van Dyke's painting there!), an exhibition hall and lots of souvenir shops. Walk along the river from there to explore the historic area or go on a boat cruise.

Römer consist of a square with 'old' houses, many of them timber framed. All except one is reconsteucted after total destruction during WWII. Picturesque and beautiful, but unfortunately very touristified. Businesses consist nainly of restaurants and souvenir shops. Tip: Visit the only really old timber framed building (restaurant). It is located in the sidestreet facing Main river.

Roemer is a pedestrian only area and is so close to the Main river. It is lively and has an array of restaurants and pubs and small eateries to chose from! I was glad to find that most of them a veg friendly! Also, there are so many live performances and acts and musicians, it just makes the whole experience... More

Nice to wander around and take photos. Near the Saalgasse, a street lined with post World War II buildings designed by famous architects from around Europe who were charged with designing a building that would reflect in more modern architecture the small buildings that had been there before the war.

Love the Romer - very simply a little piece of medieval Europe in a town square. Great architecture (look up, all around you!!) from a bygone age, resurrected after WWII. Great restaurants too.

We didn't expect to see such a nice 'old town' in Frankfurt. It was totally surprising to us when we are out of the car park. The car park is right underneath the square. Just follow the blue P signs to get the car park. You get your park ticket in the entry barrier and pay to the machine before... More

This platz was rebuilt after the terrible bombing in World War II. It is very much at the heart of the old city and there are nice bars and restaurants around. In one corner there is a tourist information shop and they are extremely helpful. They will furnish travellers with interesting free information...
