The Römerberg (lit., "Roman Mountain") is the historic heart of Frankfurt, Germany, and since the High Middle Ages the centre of the Altstadt (old town). The area's buildings include the city hall, the Römer.[1]

Paulsplatz, another historic square, is to the north. The Old St Nicholas Church and Historical Museum are to the south. Beyond that is Mainkai on the River Main. On the west side of the square is the reconstructed Römer medieval building. To the east is the Dom-Römer Project and beyond that is Frankfurt Cathedral.

Römerberg is a major location for the outdoor Frankfurt Christmas Market.[2]
