  • A worthwhile side trip in Frankfurt, views of the city are spectacular. A local guide is recommended to get the most out of this visit.  more »
  • You can really see all around the city ie at the view there is nothing to complain about, but since Frankfurt is not a particularly beautiful city, it is only partly worth paying for the entrance to the Main Tower. Historical cities are much more beautiful from above (e.g. Bern) - in this sense no "must" on a tour through Frankfurt.

  • A great spot to get high. No, not *that* kind of high. This is the part where you pay a few Euros, wait in a line, go through a magnetometer and then ride a speedy elevator (18 km/hour!) to get a terrific view.Unlike some other observation decks, the top of the Main Tower is completely open other than a low railing. There's no glass between you and the sky. No need to worry, though.
  • The views were amazing and the top is mainly open, with no glass panels which was great for photo opportunities. I've given four stars because you can only get up and down in a lift and there were long queues going back down which could have been avoiding if there was an option to use the stairs which many people tried to do but you were only able to ascend a couple of floors! Despite that, I would still recommend visiting the tower - the views are worth it.
