A good view on Main and a few skyscrapers. But I wouldn't say this is something you must see. Costs 6.5 euros per adult.

Wonderful views of the city. Totally worth the money (around 10-12 EUR)! No cage, fencing, or glass barriers - a mostly unobstructed 360 degree view of the city. The elevator is one of the only cities in Germany with skyscrapers. If you enjoy modern buildings and architecture and city skylines, this is a must see for you!

Every visitor to Frankfurt should go up this tower on a nice sunny day. You will enjoy your time on the top and the views. Be careful about the restaurant though - VERY EXPENSIVE

This is one of the bust tall buildings I have been on. The entry price was reasonable, and you get to the top very quickly. But what makes Main Tower stand out from other buildings is the fast that you are not caged in behind wire or glass barriers. You are actually in the open, which makes for terrific views,... More

Great photo opportunity of the city. Can get very busy but worth it for the views. Restaurant very expensive so did not eat.

Great tourist attraction, 6 euros to visit. Can see the whole of Frankfurt and beyond. Lift takes you up to the top and then a small flight of stairs.

I really liked this. A lift and a flight of steps gets you up to the viewing platform which gives wonderful 360 degree views of the city, the river and the surrounding areas. Cost 5.50 euros

Was a little foggy when we did this but we still got some amazing views from the tower we saw so much more than we expected. Defo good to go to if your a scenic type of person, you can literally see everything.
