Located across the street from Frankfurt’s city hall complex, the Römer, sit’s the gingerbread houses known as Römerberg. These historic timber-framed buildings recall the romance of Germany’s past through their old world, yet iconic style. While the originals were destroyed in World War II, the current houses were faithfully reconstructed according to the originals.

We went there just a few months ago. I was surprised to see old looking stuff in Frankfurt. I always think of Frankfurt as being so totally modern as to have none of this.
Looks like you found the quaint side of a large city! I love these half-timbered type of buildings. I had not idea and appreciate you sharing this.
Germany as a travel destination is so underrated. Thank you Matt for doing your bit to address the problem.
Frankfurt is not my favorite city in Germany, but I love the Römer, it feels like a quaint little German village in the middle of the city.
