First of all, I would like to clear-out something about the city of Frankfurt. It is because there are two Frankfurts in Germany. The first one is called Frankfurt am Main in the state of Hesse and the other one is Frankfurt Oder in the state of Brandenburg. Be very careful especially if you will be booking your train tickets to any Frankfurt in Germany. There is only thing I am sure of, there are car shops that offer rv repairs in these cities. For English speakers, they simply call it Frankfurt but for Germans, they usually call its full name. I guess, it is time for me to go back to my main topic.
I am especially featuring Römerberg, spelled in English as Roemerberg in Frankfurt am Main in the state of Hesse, Germany. Literally, Römerberg came from two German words, “Römer” whicn means rummer and “Berg” which means hill. It seems that I am practicing my German now. Römerberg is also the central square in Frankfurt.
It is also said that the oldest historical traces of settlement in Frankfurt am Main are to be found near here, on the hill where the cathedral stands now. The town hall with medieval facade is also located in this famous square.
I wish to share more about the global city of Frankfurt am Main in the next episode here. Here is an image taken during my third visit to Frankfurt last November 2010.
I also have a lovely couple sitting in front of the fountain. The Congressman of North Cotabato in the Philippines and his lovely wife during their Europe tour last year. I had the chance to meet them and spent some days sightseeing with them in Frankfurt am Main and its nearby cities. It was such a very memorable time I had with them.
