FRANKFURT, January 2019. A German city of old traditions and culture captivates every one who will set foot on this lovely city. A city rich in history, museums and arts which celebrates it.
We had decided to have an easy and relax downtown walk which is also the city’s “Old Town”, is an ideal to discover on foot. As we amble along its cobblestone streets and visit squares surrounded with half-timbered houses, we were allured with how this city maintained its culture and tradition while innovation takes place with emerging skyscrapers like proverbial mushrooms.
Römerberg, seat of the Frankfurt city administration since the 15th century. This square is the heart of medieval Aldstadt (old town) and a very popular destination in Frankfurt. Römerberg means “Roman Mountain” in German. This complex was destroyed during WWII and reconstructed which now gives the tourists a beautiful idea of how this area was once the seat of Frankfurt’s power and beauty.
Though minimal translation of their language (German) makes it somehow difficult to understand and roam around the place, Cyrene and I acknowledge their warm gestures make it an easy-going tour.
We surely be back here where spring makes this place more vibrant and temperate to drift around. Till then, Dankeschön Frankfurt! 😘 ☘️
