Travel and Explore The City Hall in Frankfurt

Frankfurt is the city in Germany where I first landed, in it’s huge International Airport. I visited it for the second time last year in March. I really don’t have a good photo of their Rathaus or City Hall. I just can’t find the better looking one now in my files. I mean I don’t have much time to browse for a good one. sorry guys!

Here is little information about The Roemer or Römer in Frankfurt

The Römer (German for “Roman”) is a medieval building in Frankfurt am Main, one of the city’s most important landmarks. It has been the city hall or Rathaus for 600 years. The Haus Römer is actually the middle building of a set of three located in the Römerberg (a plaza). The Römer merchant family sold it together with a second building, the Goldener Schwan (Golden Swan), to the city council on March 11, 1405 and it was converted for use as the city hall.

The Römer is not a museum and is actually used by the city for various purposes, for example as a Standesamt or civil registration office; for example, the wedding rooms are located in the first and second floor of the Haus Löwenstein. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%B6mer
