Main Tower it's in the heart of Frankfurt - Germany. Paying the Entrance Fees is well worth it as the view from top of the tower is simply surreal and mesmeric. Overall: 5 Stars

Reaching the top of the Main Tower costs 5euros. This entitles you to an elevator ride up 54 stories, a staircase walk up 3 more, and access to an open-air landing overlooking all of Frankfurt. The view is beautiful, of course, 360degrees, as far as...More

The entrance queue and airport style security took about 40 mins to clear. We were then able to access the lifts, followed by some steps to the top. Once up there you have a 360 degree view of the city and beyond. It's a great...More

Hard to fault this really. Yeh there’s a bit of a wait for the tickets but it was still only like 15-20 mins. Would recommend going just before the sun has set so that you can get day and night time views from up there....More

You pay an entry free on the ground floor to the reception with an ID and pay 12 euros and students pay 9/10 Euros and they give you access to the top floor.
