    The Römer has been the city hall of the city of Frankfurt am Main since the 15th century and with its characteristic staircase gable facade one of its landmarks. As the center of city politics, it is the seat of the city representatives and the Lord Mayor. The middle of the originally three independent buildings on Römerberg is the actual house to the Romans. For centuries, the term "Romans" has meant the entire town hall complex. Why the central building is called "Römer" is unknown; There are different, contradictory interpretations. [1]
    The air raids on Frankfurt am Main during the Second World War left only the stone facades and ground floors of the medieval houses. Behind the emblematic façade hides the new construction of a modern office building in the style of the early 1950s.

    A place that may not be missing on any Frankfurt tour. Unfortunately very often completely overcrowded ...

    At present, the Frankfurt Römer is covered with mulled wine and sausage stalls because of the Christmas market. It is slow to progress through crowds of visitors. "

    Apart from the skyline, this is the landmark of the city. The Imperial Hall in the Roman is very worth seeing (for example, during the Night of the Museums, which takes place every year in May).

As the center of city politics, it is the seat of city representatives and the mayor. The middle of the originally three independent buildings on the Römerberg is the actual Haus zum Römer. The entire town hall complex has been understood by “Römer” for centuries.
    The air raids on Frankfurt am Main in World War II left only the stone facades and ground floors of the medieval houses standing. Behind the emblematic facade is the new construction of a modern office building in the style of the early 1950s.
    Whenever the German national soccer team won an EM or World Cup title, the trophy was proudly presented to the enthusiastic fans from the balcony of the Roman.

    The Justice Fountain (also Justitiabrunnen) is a fountain on the Römerberg in Frankfurt am Main and one of the city's landmarks. It goes back to a previous building from 1543 in the same place and was created in its current form in 1611. During the time of the Holy Roman Empire, it played a special, albeit short-term role as a wine fountain for the emperor and then also for the people during the coronation ceremony. The fountain currently visible is a largely detailed copy from 1887, which was financed by the Frankfurt wine merchant Gustav D. Manskopf. It is a listed building.Source: Wikipedia

    The late Gothic Alte Nikolaikirche is a Protestant church in the old town of Frankfurt am Main. Its namesake is Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of fishermen. It is located near the Main on the Römerberg and as part of a characteristic ensemble is also known beyond Frankfurt. The building, founded as a court chapel in the middle of the 12th century, dates from the 15th century in its current appearance and has been used as a place of worship by the Evangelical Pauls Congregation since 1949 as one of the eight endowed churches in Frankfurt.Source and more: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alte_Nikolaikirche

    The Römerberg is the town hall square of Frankfurt am Main and has been the center of the old town since the High Middle Ages. The name comes from the house Zum Römer, which has been Frankfurt's town hall since the 15th century. Since then, the square has been the location of numerous events, for example for the coronations of the emperors, the Frankfurt trade fairs, the Frankfurt Christmas market and after European foot championships and World Cups for the trophy presentation from the balcony of the Römer.
    The eastern part of the Römerberg is also called Saturday Mountain. Since the reconstruction of the historic half-timbered houses on the east side of the square at the beginning of the 1980s, the Römerberg has been a popular destination for Frankfurters and tourists.
    Many are amazed that the houses opposite the Roman have so many windows. Well, the reason for that was financial interests because:
    On the occasion of the imperial coronation, a great many people wanted to cheer the new emperor when he showed himself to the people on the Roman's balcony. The window seats were then always in great demand and were rented out by the owners for a lot of money.
