      "..Our next stop was the Romerberg-- Frankfurt's old central square  surrounded by steeply gabled 14th and 15th century buildings  Actually, since eighty percent of the old city was wiped off the map by two Allied bombing raids during World War II, what stands today are largely recreations, but they provide a glimpse of the beautiful city that this once was.  We wandered to the main cathedral (which was the coronation site of the Holy Roman Emperors for over 200 years) and climbed the tower to get a better view of the city.  From the top we could see the new downtown area--full of skyscrapers and quite a stark contrast to what we had just seen in the old town, or "Romer"!  Frankfurt is actually one of Germany's financial centers and is the nation's most important transportation hub.  In fact, it is so important to Germany financially that it is often referred to as 'Bankfurt' or 'Mainhattan'...."
