Frankfurt Travel Tip:
The Römerberg historic Square
The Römer's famous eastern facade
The Römerberg (
Roman Mountain) is the historic heart of Frankfurt and home to its City Hall (Haus Römer), which dates back to 1405. Flanked by half-timbered houses, this historic square used to be the place for Frankfurt's first trade fairs in the 13th century.
The Römer is not a museum and is actually used by the city for various purposes, for example, the wedding rooms are located in the first and second floor of the Haus Löwenstein. Perhaps the best-known room of the Römer, the Kaisersaal, or Emperor Hall, is located above the Römerhalle on the second floor and is a major tourist attraction. During the Holy Roman Empire, coronation banquets took place there. Today, the Kaisersaal is well-known for its unique and unparalleled collection of 19th century portraits of all of the emperors, including works by Eduard Von Steinle of Albert I and Ferdinand III.
