Overall: The Main Tower with its flat top was made to be a panoramic attraction! As a local, whenever I show guests and friends around the city for their first time I'd take them up top. Lines to the pay-window and elevators can run a bit long on busy days, but usually a visit would last around 30 minutes. Can... More

Worth a visit , quick and easy journey in the elevator to the top. Although we had to wait a few minutes due to the crowds and when they reopened to make payment , you got the usual people jumping the queue ! Annoying but usually only the minority. The views were very good and gave a good perspective on... More

It is a beautiful view of the city. Unfortunately I was there on a Sunday so the restaurant was shut so I could not enjoy the excellent food with view. When I went it was raining making the view even more beautiful.

Great way to start your visit, so you can orientate yourself in the built up city scape. Can get busy at certain times of the day, so get there early and check the weather forecast

Our large group visited the Main Tower upon our arrival in Frankfurt. Admission was fair and the elevator was very fast. After a couple flights of steps we were up to the main viewing area. It was a wonderful view of the city!

Although this is not the tallest building in Frankfurt but it's the only one that allow you to go right up to the top. Do so if you do not have a fear of heights, unlike views from the Eiffel Tower, views of Frankfurt are basically one part modern, and one part old. You can see the Hauptbahnhof and also... More

Stunning view of Frankfurt city - highly recommended if you're not afraid of heights! PS make sure not to come on a very sunny day or else it'll be sunny to view over the city.

The tower is a great idea for tourists! Easy to get to by walking, cost €6.50 for adults but as I have a student card was only €4.50. You take an elevator to level 54 then walk up a couple of flights of stairs, and you're at the top! Amazing panoramic views of Frankfurt. Glass barriers keep everyone safe and... More

Lovely experience. Got a student ticket for 4.50 euro, had to queue for about 10 minutes and go through security. Then got a lift right up to the top where you can see everything in Frankfurt. It really is a beautiful skyline and if your new to Frankfurt it's a great way to get an overview.
