View up there is surprisingly nice & peaceful. You can see pretty much all of Frankfurt, and it's a nice city. Loved the view to the river.

We had just one evening in Frankfurt so we decided to visit the Römer and the panorama platform. Main Tower offers a breathtaking view of the whole city. We really enjoyed looking down on all the skyscrapers and watching a plane land in every 2 minutes. We visited at 8 p.m. (it’s open until 11 p.m.), so there were no... More

Go there at the sunset and you'll get amazing pictures. They allow us to bring tripods, so you can make long exposure shots with no glass in front of you.

I went on a clear bright sunny morning. What you are paying for is the view and that's what you get. There are no frills - modernized lifts and toilets, one flight of steps to climb but no added bells and whistles (bells, statues, sculptures etc) Nothing wrong with that. But only if you really want a birds eye view... More

We love to get a panoramic views of cities we visited as this provides us with unforgettable images and also provide us with proper bearings of where we are. We were at the Main Tower in the morning of an exceptionally hot day, 35 c. The views were amazing especially of the bridges and buildings near the river. We could... More

Like going on the Empire State or Rockefeller Center, you get a beautiful, 360 view from the top. Unlike view in other cities, you don't have to pay ahead of of money or be forced thru a gift shop or photo booth to do it! Price was reasonable, we took as long as we wanted and were able to purchase... More

Pay 6.5 euro for a ride up to the top of Main Tower for a panoramic view of Frankfurt. Summer is a great time to visit as even at 7pm we had a great view with the sun still up.

If you want to see the city from the top, and don't mind paying 6,5 E, the best place. Count with a crowd in high season...

Let go of your inner cheap self, pay the few euros, and take the elevator to the 56 floor. Or was it 54th? I forget. Anyway, the view up there is awesome. Spend 10-15 minutes, snap some pics to make your relatives and friends jealous, and go out and paint the town.
