Amazing Frankfurt


The Römer’s silhouette is world-famous and unmistakably belongs to Frankfurt. The city’s government has been located here since the 15th century, and it gave its name to the square. Since the 9th century, the Römerberg, formerly called the Samstagsberg, has been the site of markets and fairs, tournaments and festivals, executions and imperial elections and coronations. In the 16th century it was considered the most beautiful square in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. It is from this era that the fountain of justice in the middle of the square also originates. Adorned with a statue of Justice with unbound eyes, a scale and sword, this was the first fountain in Frankfurt. A few steps away from the fountain there is a plaque in the cobblestones that commemorates the book burning by the National Socialists in 1933.

Frankfurt bukanlah kota pariwisata. Tetapi saat saya dan keluarga pertama kali mengunjunginya, suasana dan lingkungannya begitu mengesankan dan mengagumkan. Frankfurt adalah kota pertama saya menginjakkan kaki di tanah Eropa, karena saat itu penerbangan yang kami pilih tidak landing di negara tujuan. Kota ini adalah bukti nyata perjalanan sejarah, perpaduan antara budaya dan perkembangan teknologi. Melihat di internet kemajuan dan orisinalitas kota Frankfurt saat ini kembali mengingatkan saya akan kenangan saya bersama keluarga ketika berada di Frankfurt.
