Frankfurt Römer is the name of Frankfut's city hall, which means "Roman."

It is a fact that nine houses were acquired by the city council in 1405 from a wealthy merchant family.

The middle house became the city hall and was later connected with the neighbouring buildings. In the upper floor is the Kaisersaal (Emperor's Hall), where the newly crowned kings held their banquets. Also, enthusiastic receiptions are being helt here.

The Römer, as many other buildings too, was destroyed in World War 2, but has been rebuilt quickly.

All 52 emperors who ruled the Empire from 768 to 1806 are immortalised in oil paintings. Definitely worth seeing!

Nowadays, the building is being used quite often for celebrations and contributions. For instance, once a sports team was successful and comes back, it will meet here on the Frankfurt Römer's balcony to celebrate its success with all the fans hanging around on this place.

You find the Römer in the middle of downtown.
