Beautiful old part, very nice architecture, looks like in a fairy tale. One annoying thing are the tasteless souvenir shops around the place, but this is normal for each city nowadays.

To tell the truth there was nothing much to see other than the Frankfurt Cathedral close by. There were a bunch of over priced cafes and souvenir shops in a small square. The Frankfurt Catherdal was interesting, nothing decorative, but quite imposing so I can imagine why 10 Roman emperors were crowned here.

I found this place wonderful. Very pretty, a lot of people (locals and tourists), and charming places, buildings and restaurants.. The only drawback was the darkness.. I went there in the end of the day and found it really dark. More lights, please? The Xmas market was still closed. I imagine that it is lovely during Xmas month. A must... More

The square is nice but I think it pops up because the hystorical part of the city is quite small. I think there are better squares to visit (e.g. Grand Place in BXL) but it deserves to be visited...at least to get the idea of what Frankfurt was some decades ago...

Granted I was there for one day only - a damp, cold and windy day (not perfect for exploring any city) and I was exhausted from my travels. I didn't/wasn't able to give the place a chance. My walk from the rail station into town heading for... More

A true step back in time, beautiful buildings, getting ready for the holidays with a lovely tree in the square. Be sure to check out the Cathedral and St Nicholas church all within the same area. Great footbridge to cross the river and check out the city from a river view! Very glad I visited!

A fairy tail square. Old building looking like new, like stepping into an Anderson fairy tail. Lots of little shops and restaurants around. Not to be missed when in Frankfurt.

Great for people watching and taking photos with some lovely bars/cafe around. If in Frankfurt you will most prob pass through here. Good for people watching close to the city centre

This was a great place to take some photos of some beautifully restored buildings and things going on in the plaza. I enjoyed A cup of apple wine which was delicious on this cool evening while soaking in the atmosphere.
