Great views of Frankfurt from 50 levels

Can't really get better views of Frankfurt unless you strap yourself to a drone...a great tourist trap

Modern and dynamic town, with a small and still under recovery medieval center in which only the cathedral survived with minor damage to WWII heavy bombing.

Main tower is the best building in Frankfurt. From the roof you can see all the city, the river Meno and his famous bridge. Is a place that deserves to be seen !

Just exquisite fancy and very very delicious. Its upsetting to have charge for taking the elevator but it is worth the experinece once you are upthere. Will definetely come again

One of the tallest buildings in Frankfurt, it gives you a good view of the city but it's nothing special. Prices are reasonable to go up but it's hardly as exciting as somewhere like the Eiffel Tower. Claims to have one of the fastest elevators in Europe. Clutching at straws springs to mind!

We had to wait for 30 min before we could go up. Before entering, you have to pass a security check. The 360° view was great. There are some information boards to point out some of the buildings you see.

I love 360 panorama views of cities, and I believe this is one of the best spots I have ever been. It's a great venue to enjoy Frankfurt skyline! You can see this sexy, tall buildings, the river and the bridges, the TV tower and the Altstadt. The tower has a good security check, and the elevator display shows on... More

It took almost an hour to get through the line to the top. Didn't seem too busy so would not want to be there at the busy tourist season. 7.50 euro is also a bit pricey for the attraction. If you are lucky to be up there on a good day to see the sun set it makes it better.

We waited for 30 min before we could go up. The view is definitely nice but if you don't have time to visit, don't worry about it.
