DomRömer Project - Reconstruction of Frankfurt’s Old Town

People walking across the Römerberg on their way to the Emperor’s Cathedral will automatically find themselves facing a gigantic construction site. What’s happening here in the heart of Frankfurt’s old town, passers-by may ask. The approximately 7,000-square-metre area in the heart of Frankfurt’s old town is being reconstructed on the basis of the original blueprints of the quarter. Once completed, it will comprise nearly 30 townhouses.
