Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Germany  /  Hesse  /  Frankfurt  /  Main Tower

Main Tower, Frankfurt

4.5
Main Tower offers several stylish ways to unwind after a busy day, all of them with impressive views over the city rooftops. Opened in 1999, the 200 m (656 ft) skyscraper remains one of the tallest buildings in Germany and the only one in Frankfurt with a public observation deck. Before you head up, take time to appreciate two important pieces of contemporary art in the foyer--a video installation by Bill Viola and a wall mosaic by Stephan Huber. Europe's highest fitness club occupies the 53rd and 54th floors of the building, and if you need to fill an empty stomach after a workout head to the restaurant on the 53rd floor. You can plan Frankfurt trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Totally recommended! A perfect place to see Frankfurt city from the top. Magnificent view from the rooftop. The price was well worth the experience.  more »
  • It is always good to have a look at the city from the top. The main tower gives you this opportunity at reasonable costs. There were no ques, with no waiting time and the travel time up was short...  more »

  • A great spot to get high. No, not *that* kind of high. This is the part where you pay a few Euros, wait in a line, go through a magnetometer and then ride a speedy elevator (18 km/hour!) to get a terrific view.Unlike some other observation decks, the top of the Main Tower is completely open other than a low railing. There's no glass between you and the sky. No need to worry, though.
  • The views were amazing and the top is mainly open, with no glass panels which was great for photo opportunities. I've given four stars because you can only get up and down in a lift and there were long queues going back down which could have been avoiding if there was an option to use the stairs which many people tried to do but you were only able to ascend a couple of floors! Despite that, I would still recommend visiting the tower - the views are worth it.
