Visiting the Roemer, part of the Altstadt, is a must when in Frankfurt. Without this core, Frankfurt would be without a soul and that was one of the good reasons to rebuilt after the horrible destruction during the war. They have done a decent job. One of the highlights here, though, is the Christmas Market that takes place every year.... More

In summertime the Frankfurt city square "Römer" is great place for relaxation and people watching. Settle down in one of the open air cafés and enjoy the atmosphere, the bustle of sightseers and locals around the "Fountain of Justice", the periodic chimes of nearby churches. Afterwards, be inspired by a visit to the "Schirn" Museum or wander down to the... More

Frankfurt became, as with so many other cities in Central Europe, hard hit during World War II. Of course they have chosen to restore and rebuild the older houses and especially those around the central square, and it is nicely done, but still an artificial feel. There are many examples around Europe and of course it's about each city's soul... More

There's not much to the Frankfurt Romer. The city has recreated some "historic" half-timbered houses in the area around the city hall. It's got some restaurants around the square and the Schirn Kunsthall (museum) and the MMK (Museum of Modern Art) as well as the City Historical Museum are all nearby and are worth visiting.

I have visited the Frankfurt Romer over many occasions during the four years I was stationed there. It is a wonderful place to visit and see all the historical sites from the Bahn Station to the Romas ruins. The restaurants are fabulous and the walk acrosss the Main River over the bridges is outstanding.

This place was rebuilt after its total destruction in WW II; only one house ("Das steinerne Haus"), where one can drink an excellent beer, withstood the bombings. There are a lot of nice picturesque taverns in this area.

The square is a good spot to start a tour of museums and galleries including the neighboring Schirn. River boats also depart nearby. Avoid restaurants on the square which aren't good value
