Römerberg

Römerberg is a medieval square and the hub of the Old Town, Altstadt. The original Römerberg was destroyed during World War II, but it has been rebuilt since and nowadays you can once again stroll around this beautiful square and look at the various buildings. Hopefully your timing is right and you will get to witness one of the public festivals that are held here. At the centre of the square lies the Fountain of Justice (Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen), where the statue of goddess Justitia holds the scales of justice. Perhaps the most famous building here is the "Römer", which is the city hall, and has been so for the last 600 years.

Do & See

Frankfurt am Main, the bustling metropolis in the heart of Europe, is known for its unusual contrasts: historical attractions, as the Römerberg with its half-timbered houses, the Emperors' Cathedral or St Paul's Church, are just a stone's throw away from the unique skyline, extraordinary cultural offers, a real shopping eldorado and numerous events throughout the year, which make Frankfurt the perfect destination for an exciting city break.
