| The Roemer (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. For over five hundred years, Frankfurt was the site of the election and coronation of German kings and emperors.
Römerhalle and Schwanenhalle, these two halls are the oldest remaining rooms in the building and are virtually unchanged after 600 years. At one point, the first Frankfurt book fairs took place in these rooms and gold and silversmiths sold their merchandise there.
Kaisersaal, or Emperor Hall, is located above the Römerhalle on the second floor. During the Holy Roman Empire, coronation banquets took place there
