Iconic square in the old city of Frankfurt that reminds me of German fairy tales. As a child, I have read the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin in an illustrated book for kids where the rats infested streets of Hamelin were looking just like Romerberg Platz in Frankfurt.
Nowadays, the square is invaded mainly by tourists, however it's nice to hang around here over a beer, a sausage and a pretzel, watching the people passing by.

Visited here while staying not to far away, 5minuted by tram. The splendour is there for all to see and even during my visit there was a very heavy fall that didn’t do much to dampen the spirits of the crowd.

With many coffee shops and oven fronted shop selling all kinds of tack I’m sure there is something there for everyone.

Numerous other tourist attractions are within a stones throw so you can easily spend a day or two here comfortably.

You can’t visit Frankfurt without coming to the old square to witness the history that took place here 👌👍🏻

As the name of the square suggests, this area is the hub of old Frankfurt, dating back to Roman settlements along the Main River - in fact some old Roman ruins can be viewed just beyond the square at the archaeological museum. While most (if not all) of the buildings were reconstructed after WWII, you still get a good feel for the early days of this city and how it would have looked for the medieval era. More important for the present, most of the major attractions that visited were either immediately on the square, or a short walk beyond it. Conveniently, there are numerous cafes, shops and restaurants right on the square. When we were there, the square took on a different character as being one of the major areas of the well-run Frankfurt Christmas market.

While the rest of the city looks like any modern city, this small section of town has some beautiful colorful Tudor buildings and chapels. The river front is right here as well. Worth a visit.

Frankfurt was pretty much levels in WW2. They started building the old town at Romer. When I saw 12 years ago, it was only the square. Now it has spread around the area and the city is trying to rebuild the old style in the whole area. It has made it much more charming to walk through and be in. The christmas Market covers this whole area and spreads a lot further in Nov & Dec

This Roman square is the quintessential and classic view of Germany for me.

Sites of some Roman ruins nearby. Cute little shops and kiosks for food and drinks.

This is where you can find the true Tudor style buildings in its original design and form. Much more detailed and classier then the basic cookie cutter styles back in the states, but we try to emulate the best we can. Would like this design back in MI. Why not.

Do not be fooled!
It is a fake, tasteless reconstruction or replica of an old town. Germany has turned many city centres into a Disneyland style environment.
Not different from the Chinese replicas of European cities. And even China has banned those.

The Römer area never disappoints. Even during corona times the plaza was vibrant and alive. People just coming and going, strolling under the sun in a beautiful day of fall. Hopefully life will go back to normal so we can really enjoy all the street activities and markets that happens at the Römer. But for now we take whatever we can and enjoy the view and the vibe.

Even if this attraction is mainly a recreation as opposed to the original building it is still a great place to meet friends in Frankfurt. They have a variety of restaurants, shops and bars in the area. It is quite fun and lively. When we were there they had a bunch of football fans celebrating a recent match.

It is an area different than other city area in Frankfurt. A good photo-taking spot for all tourists. We were there when the weather was still cold and a little bit wet. Not many people around makes it better for us.
Must visit!
