Frankfurt's skyline is - at least by German standards - really impressive. Fifteen of the twenty tallest buildings in Germany are located in Frankfurt, which has given the city the affectionate nickname "Mainhattan". But the view of the skyline is also really fascinating - especially when you can enjoy it from above. This is possible on the viewing platform of one of the city's tallest buildings, the Main Tower. Actually a popular meeting point for tourists, every Frankfurt citizen should at least once view his city from here. Admittedly, the platform at a height of about 200 meters is already a challenge for people with fear of heights. But soft knees and a little sweat are a price you should be willing to pay in addition to the 7.50 € entrance fee.
The view of Frankfurt here - and in particularly good weather far beyond the city limits - is absolutely spectacular. Through the foyer, where you have to buy your ticket and take the usual safety precautions, you reach the elevator that takes you to the 54th floor. From there it goes further up a staircase to the upper viewing platform. Here, if your knees get too soft, you can either sit on the bench in the middle and enjoy the view from here, or you can venture to the edge, from where you can enjoy the full panoramic view of Frankfurt and its various districts. EZB Bank, Ginnheimer Spargel, Messeturm, the Zeil, Frankfurt's numerous bridges over the Main, the main railway station - all this and much more can be admired from this great vantage point.
But there is even more in the Main Tower: on the 53rd and 54th floor, where once a television studio of hr was located, there is the highest fitness club in Europe. On the 53rd floor, the restaurant also offers upscale cuisine with a spectacular view. In the foyer there is a small souvenir shop in addition to the Helaba art collection, which of course can also be viewed without an excursion to the visitors' terrace. But especially for all Frankfurters who love their city, the viewing platform is of course the only real reason to visit the Main Tower. It's really worth it!
