The open days at the Römer offer a multifaceted look behind the scenes

Under the motto "City of Citizens", the Römer will open its doors to all interested Frankfurt residents on 27 and 28 October. At numerous information booths, offices and parliamentary groups will introduce themselves and enter into direct dialogue with the citizens. Guided tours allow a look behind the scenes and an extensive stage programme offers entertainment and information for all age groups. For Lord Mayor Peter Feldmann, it has always been important since he took office to welcome not only celebrities such as heads of state or athletes, but also committed citizens, children's groups or students to the Römer. But the open days are a different matter altogether, as here really all Frankfurt residents are invited. "It's a day of openness and transparency - the way we imagine Frankfurt to be," said the Lord Mayor at the programme presentation.

This day is also about showing how every citizen can play a part in managing the city's affairs. City councillors and local advisory councils are to help educate in direct dialogue about how everyone can get involved themselves. This is to be achieved not only at the information stands, but also through activities such as the dialogue bakery: While decorating and decorating baked goods together, a casual dialogue between citizens and politics is to be created.

Stories from the city's Golden Book, talk rounds on a wide variety of topics such as housing in the city or football, poetry slam, roundel singing and hip hop dance, an appearance by Frankfurt actor and cabaret artist Michael Quast, lots of music and, of course, guided tours are also on the varied programme. But it is also possible to explore the Römer on your own - supported by the "Römerpass", which offers lots of interesting information on individual areas. Another highlight is the presentation of some of the most curious guest gifts brought by state guests from all over the world.

Those wishing to visit the Römer on the open days should, however, refrain from bringing large rucksacks, luggage or shopping, so as to avoid unnecessary delays at the entrance. In case of emergency, a luggage bus will be waiting on the Römerberg, but even this does not have unlimited capacity. So, best to pack as little as possible!

Doors open Friday, Oct. 27, from 4 - 9 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 28.10., from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
