Experience Frankfurt at its most beautiful

It is hard to imagine that, as late as the 1950s, the historic Kaiserdom imperial cathedral was still the tallest building in the city. Today, the famous skyline can be made out from a long way and at its heart, where the financial district meets the city centre: the MAIN TOWER.

If you take a somewhat closer look at Frankfurt, you will quickly discover that Germany’s leading financial centre has a great deal more to offer than just bourses and banks. Similarly, not everything revolves around international finance in the MAIN TOWER either. With its cultural highlights and first-class cuisine, exciting insights and ever fascinating panoramas, the MAIN TOWER is not just a special skyscraper; it has also become a true Frankfurt landmark.
