Römerberg – Medieval Reserve

Getting to know Frankfurt usually starts with Römerberg square in the heart of the old city. Its landmark is the City Hall Römer. In 1405, the city authorities, in order to save on construction of a new building, decided to buy a house with an adjacent structure from a wealthy Italian merchant and arrange a city hall there. Later, several neighboring houses were attached to the complex. When being inside, don’t miss Kaisersaal or Emperor’s Hall! Banquets were given there in the days of the Holy Roman Empire on the occasion of coronation of new emperors. Today, you can see there an impressive collection of portraits of 52 German emperors, from Charlemagne, crowned in the year 800, to Francis II, who abdicated the throne in 1806.

There are six half-timbered medieval-style houses survived on the eastern side of the square, in front of the City Hall. Unfortunately, the original buildings were wiped out during World War II, and these houses are just a thorough reconstruction made in 1980s of the XX century. However, they look colorful and form, together with the City Hall, a corner of medieval Germany in the centre of the modern city.

Another attraction of Römerberg is the Fountain of Justice, with the statue of the goddess Justitia mounted in the center of it. Unconventionally, her eyes are not bound.
