We refer to the time of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. For the splendid and festive banquets on the occasion of the coronation of the emperors a suitable "location" was    needed. A hall inside the "Römer", the Frankfurt townhall,  proved to be ideal. This place  was used for business of city councillors and became prominent  in history as the "Emperor´s    Hall".  52 more than life size portraits illustrate the importance of  one of the most important places in history. The impressive gallery showing portraits from Charlemagne up to Franz II    was initiated by the director of the Städel in 1842. The tour gives an insight into the origin of the gallery as well as the life of individual emperors who are important to the city´s history. duration: approx. 40 min.
