When I was looking for things to do in Frankfurt, this constantly popped up so I thought we would give it a go. It was actually really good. It costs 6.50 euros to go to the top which I thought was just the right price for the experience as you get the most amazing birds eye view of the city... More

Having seen many cities nightscapes around the world, this is pretty low on the list, having said that, the view is rather romantic and showcases Germany's financial centre on a pretty impressive scale, even if it's small compared to Hong Kong, NYC or Tokyo, it's still worth a visit... 6.50 euro isn't that cheap, and you won't wanna spend long...

It is one of the highest buildings in Frankfurt. The view is incredible, you can see pretty much the whole city. It has a fast elevator that takes you up 54 floors. I think it is worth the visit.

Soso and very expensive, I not hope that it is free, but 6.5 euro is too expensive. That is my view. I go there on Sunday. That is all

Overall we enjoyed the experience and got a reasonable view of Frankfurt, despite the mist! There was quite a queue despite it being early and in between Christmas and New Year. Security was totally pointless. Like the Empire State and the Louvre, there was an attempt at "airport" style security. However, everyone who was "beeping" through the metal detector was... More

There is no better place to appreciate a better view of the city by going up the top of Main tower. Watch the weather though as it is only open during good weather.

The view over Frankfurt is awesome and is certainly the highlight of any trip to Frankfurt. The fee to take the lift is reasonable, however it would have been great if there was a restaurant at the top or something other than just the view.

Very nice view on the city from the top. Tickets are available for sale at the entrance to the building. The elevator will take you to the top floor in a matter of few minutes. There is a restaurant on top, but it was closed (not sure if it ever works on Sundays).

wonderful view of the city - although it is a bit pricey, I wouldn't give it any less than 5 stars. Remarkable!! It's also very good for navigating without a map :-)
