In the centre of the Römerberg stands the Fountain of Justice (Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen). Not only does it belong to one of the most visited landmarks in Frankfurt it is also a popular motif for postcards and photos.

 

The fountain played an important role at emperor coronations, when a large public festival was held on the Römerberg. The fountain was then filled with wine instead of water and the people of Frankfurt could enjoy "ox on a spit".
