A very short walk from our hotel and from the main town centre and the 'Old Town' we took the elevator to the 54th floor Viewing balcony. The 360 degree views are second to none, you can stay 'indoors' and take in the views, from...More

We finally found one tower that we could visit. Didn’t expect that much security but it took about 30 minutes in line. The terrasse was good with both inside and outside views and toilets.

The admission is inexpensive. Oh, my, the narrow stairs on the way up literally take your breath away 😜. We'll worth the effort; the views of the old city and new from the top are fabulous!!

A very nice panoramic view of all Frankfurt. Good security checks at the entrance. It was a bit windy but had a nice moment and was worthy seeing.

MainTower allows to see the whole city of Frankfurt, that is wonderful seen from this skyscraper. I went there on a Friday evening, when the tower is open ‘til late, so I watched the sunset from the terrace: it was beautiful!

Defenitly a must visit when you are in Frankfurt. Stunning views of Frankfirt from approximately 200 meters up the main tower. The price to go in is 7.50 which is worth it. Do come early after opening as then it's most quiet.

Good view when you finally get there. But the entrance is narrow, just one elevator worked so the line was long. Once you come up with elevator you still have a couple and more stairs to walk. The place cannot be made for sightseeing. But...More

Guten Morgen, Queues vary a lot depending on days/hours. Best and fastest way is to buy some kind of “touristic pass” for attractions. In this case you only need to change the voucher for the ticket in a fast... More

You pay an entry free on the ground floor to the reception with an ID and pay 12 euros and students pay 9/10 Euros and they give you access to the top floor.
