A large town square that's about as close as you're going to come to old world Germany while in Frankfurt. Timber buildings line the square, making for a picturesque site. Also lining the square are a number of restaurants and shops. This is a great spot for tourists visiting Frankfurt, which also means it's obviously full of tourists. So prepare accordingly. There will be crowds and the restaurants a bit more overpriced than normal. The square also includes a visitor information center, making Römerberg a good place to start your Frankfurt visit. It's also central to many of the other sites in town. Consider beginning your journey here, grabbing a bite to eat, taking some photos, but otherwise there's not much more to the square itself.
Must visit if you are in Frankfurt city. I love seeing a group of people pay attention to their guide who telling the story of this place. I love seeing children play around while their parents taking photos. I love seeing bride & groom taking a photo shot for their wedding ceremony.
I love Römerberg plaza. It is a quiet, quaint area in the middle of a big city. The renovation projects that they've done to some of the houses' facades make it even more special. The church museum nearby is a must-see. It is absolutely lovely. If you're in Frankfurt for only a few hours, this is the place to go.
Iconic central square in Frankfurt, even though the most impressive timbered house fronts are a modern recreation. Very crowded with tourists. Near here an entire historic quarter was rebuilt and recently opened to the public, worth a visit.
Centre of Frankfurt. Altstad I guess. There are restaurants around where you can sit either outside or inside. But I preferred sitting outside and watch the historic buildings and the passersby. On Sunday most of the restaurants close but there will be some that opens even on Sundays
