A must when in Frankfurt. The square in front is also very nice and the buildings all around rebuilt in the old original style. The architecture and the interior are also impressive.

Just visited Romerberg a couple of days ago and here is my take. size of area: it is a small area filled with restaurants, cafes, gift shops etc. Cleanliness: Extremely clean area and well maintained although there are some inconsiderate people who spray pain graffiti on old buildings but the area is clean and picture perfect.

Frankfurt has three "typically German" buildings and they're all in the Roemer square. They're all rebuilt, as well, just to appease tourists that don't know better. If you want real architecture try Marburg or even better, Strasbourg. This is the small-town equivalent of going to Las Vegas and saying you've seen the Eiffel Tower.

We visited in mid December when the whole square was decked out with Christmas stalls selling gluewein, bratwurst and beautifully crafted Christmas wares. It was still easy to see how lovely the old buildings in the square were, very traditional. The Christmas tree they have shipped in for the season was stunning and there was also a pretty life sized... More

Although this time of year the place was full of stalls, it didn't lack the traditional bygone German feel. Buildings painfully reconstructed to their style and origin. The lights, colour, bratwurst cooking, gluhwein and beer. What else would you want?

This is located between the best shopping area of Frankfurt and the old town in Frankfurt. I was fascinated by this area. I also have a great lunch right in the square. I would disagree with the review about pick pockets, in my opinion it seems to be a very safe city. In fact I was very late at night,... More

Nice square with lots of touristy souvenir shops. Lots of tourists passing by. But I saw many pick pockets roaming around. Just be careful! I've seen many better square like this in Europe, so if you are in a hurry, you can give this a miss.
