This is on the tick list for tourists and you would feel you had missed out if you didn't do it, so go ahead, it is what is says on the tin, a fantastic view of the city. Best to go when you have visited various places and then you can point out where you've been!

The view was fabulous from the observation deck. Great perspective of the city and the Rhine. It is the first lift we have been in that measures it's progress in metres rather than floors.

The top of the tower gives you the best view of Frankfurt, but nothing more. I mean, I have been in other observatories and they have some extra information about the city, about the construction of the building, etc, here, I found nothing, just some posters indicating what are you looking at. The staff in the ground floor were not... More

Fabulous views of the city and worth a look. Entrance price is reasonable. The restaurant and cafe were closed when we visited unfortunately.

The Main Tower is the best place in Frankfurt for a panoramic view of the entire city. Summer is the best time to visit as even at 7pm we had a great view on sunny days. It worth the 6.5 Euro for a breathtaking view, and for photo-enthusiasts it is a must.

Having climbed 3 towers during my trip to Germany, I have to give this one the highest grade. Very nice views. Good elevator. Plenty of room at the top to walk around and see the sights. You have to pay a small amount for a ticket, but it's worth it. It was a great view of Frankfurt!

This is a great way to see the city on a clear day. The towers in the financial district look amazing. The lift shoots to the top of the tower in a matter of seconds. Well worth a trip.
