Römer

Quick facts

Römer is former Patrician Villa has been serving as Frankfurt’s city hall since 1405, featuring a three gabled Roof. This is the most recognizable attraction in Frankfurt. It is located opposite the Old St. Nicholas church, also one of the most important landmarks of the city.

Römer is actually the middle building of a set of three located in the Römerberg plaza. It once functioned as a trading hub and venue for Frankfurt’s famous book fairs, and now usually used for weddings and official functions. The various rooms, which include a restored Kaisersaal (Emperor Hall), are not normally open to the public, but the building is worth a visit if only to snap a photo of the iconic three-peaked neo-Gothic facade.

Römer and Römerberg (public square in front of the building complex) are the main points of exploration of Frankfurt and great photo opportunity places.
