We loved the Romer area in Frankfurt. Old town area with some great souvenir shops and restaurants. Music Festival going on when we were there. Crowded but really nice.

Römer is a nice area to visit if one is in the center of Frankfurty The Square od surrounded by some old historic buildings but it's much too often overcrowded with tourists. It's minutes away from other city center attractions and it's a nice place to see but rather nothing special. If you'd like something quieter lose yourself in one... More

It is the heart of the city so you will most certainly pass by as we did. Do not expect to be blown away by the beauty: some buildings have been rebuilt in a more modern style so there is no architectural unity. There are more beautiful squares in other town or villages of Germany.

As you stand in the old square you can imagine what it was like in by-gone days as you dodge the hoards of tourists following umbrellas. It only takes a few minutes to take in the beautiful architecture so leave plenty of time for other activities but it is a definite must see

We had the chance to visit Roemer during Summer, when a Market Fair occurs. Lots of stalls, games and people from everywhere.

Re-constructed historic buildings, rather limited in area, not a great deal to do. Dom visually scenic from outside, rather plain inside.

I spent a couple hours in Frankfurt waiting for my flight and found this place as I walked. Best spot if you want to have the "German" feeling off the city as most of it as modern buildings/skyscrapers being its a banking hub. Lot of good places to eat and shop it, nice looking authentic old school German buildings, also... More

Spent my first day in Germany in this area. Liked the area and had a great lunch in the Square. The hop on hop off tour made it easy to get here. I found the people of Frankfurt MUCH nicer than Munich. I hate to say it but the residents of Munich I encountered were downright rude and mean. I... More
