A few more steps and we are in the middle of the Römerberg. Towards the Cathedral, the square is lined by historical timber-framed buildings as in the past. They bear sonorous names such as ‘Großer Engel’ (Great Angel), ‘Goldener Greif’ (Golden Griffin) or ‘Schwarzer Stern’ (Black Star). The houses were faithfully reconstructed according to the originals as if the dreadful night of bombing in March 1944 had never taken place, a night in which they all, along with the entire old part of the city, were destroyed.
