Frankfurt is a great European city - particularly if you're traveling to the continent for the first time or you're a relatively inexperienced traveler. Frankfurt has a major airport to travel anywhere to/from the US via a direct flight. And you can get anywhere in Europe via train or air from Frankfurt. It's a more manageable city to navigate than... More

Cool city center area with restaurants and shops. Lots of choices. Since Frankfurt was basically leveled during ww2 most of the buildings are recreations.

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
