Romer is one of the most important landmarks of Frankfurt city. The Römer is located opposite the Old St. Nicholas church and has been the city hall (Rathaus) of Frankfurt for over 600 years. This place is great to spend some good time with family in the afternoon followed by a walk to the nearby market area.

you don't know what's real and what not. The whole complex is a post-war fake for visitors/tourists who don't have a clue about history. Restaurants in the area are high priced and don't offer quality.

We were there for our Christmas holidays and the market was the only reason why we started our trip in Frankfurt at the Romer.

When I have the chance to visit the lovely Frankfurt, Romer Platz is truly my fab. Just touring around and enjoying its design, architecture and of course a couple of great restaurants with real best frankfurter cuisine. I rather like it during the day!

We only managed to make it here after nightfall, but the architecture in this square was beautifully lit up, and we took a few amazing photos. We can only imagine what it'd be like during the day! Definitely coming back here, preferably in summer.

Beautiful architecture, great shopping & always an outdoor festival of some kind going on! Love it! Been there for a Wine festival & a few times for the Christmas Market - both were fantastic!

This is a typical German square with half timbered buildings which house restaurants. Tha square is home to the Christmas market, well worth a visit. From here, amble to the superb shops and museums. Taxis easy from here.

Recently visited Franfurt mainly to experience the Christmas markets And we were not disappointed, the atmosphere was amazing, the aroma of all the foods, sweets drinks were unbelievable It's worth looking around, as a few of the stalls have the same items but at largely different prices, all of the stall holders were polite, helpful and spoke English, so even...

After WWII, the Romer was restored to it's former medieval glory. Visit this for a contrast between the hyper-commercial milieu of the EU's financial hub and what was once Frankfort.
