Frankfurt may not be known as a tourist city, but the city for stressed business people. Frankfurt was heavily destroyed during the bombings of WWII, much of the old settlement was lost. Now a lot is rebuilt and well worth a visit to feel the new cozy atmosphere.

Historical sights in Frankfurt

A large part of the historical sights is located around Römer. Römer actually means Frankfurt’s old town hall complex. Nowadays, the square is also connected to the houses of Römer.frankfurt-romer-5

The houses at Römer became important already in 1407 and came to play an important role in the German-Roman Empire. Frankfurt was a place of royal character and until the dissolution of the kingdom, a total of ten royal crownings took place here. The crown took place in the cathedral, but after the ceremony, a big feast dinner was always eaten by the Römer houses.frankfurt-romer-3

The entire square and the surrounding houses are reconstructed today after the devastation of the 1940s. Work is still ongoing at the houses around to get their historical features.frankfurt-romer-4
