This aerial view shows the Roemerberg, the City Hall Square located in the historic centre in the City of Frankfurt am Main, which is in the Hessen region of Germany. From this aerial view at dusk, you can see the buildings located very close together all clustered around the main square.
The Roemerberg is a popular stop on any traveler's tour of Frankfurt as it is a great place to not only see the historic buildings and the architecture, but it is also an ideal place to stop and grab a coffee or ice cream and do some people watching for a few hours. This is a busy city square, with many people passing through and so it is the perfect place to relax and let the feel of the city and its inhabitants just wash over you.
One of the most popular attractions in the Roemerberg is the Roemer building, which has been the City Hall for Frankfurt for over 600 years. There is also the Justice Fountain located in the center, although it cannot be seen from this view. The Roemerberg was heavily damaged during the Second World War and it took a number of years to rebuild it. Reconstruction was finally completed in 1986 and now the Square includes a Kulturschirn, which is a leisure and cultural zone for residents and tourists.
