The MAIN TOWER: One of the premier things to do in Frankfurt
Sightseeing at lofty heights: The MAIN TOWER is a very special attraction in Frankfurt that draws thousands of visitors every year. At a height of 240 metres, the MAIN TOWER is among the five tallest office buildings in Germany and is the highest skyscraper that possesses a publicly accessible observation deck.

The observation deck on the MAIN TOWER is located at a height of 198 metres and offers a breath-taking panoramic view over Frankfurt with its famous skyline and the impressive new ECB headquarters. Visitors are rewarded with a unique picturesque backdrop, especially at sunset, and it’s not only amateur photographers who get their money’s worth. Incidentally, photos can be tagged on Instagram using #maintower, a selection of which is published on our photo page.
A special kind of skyscraper
But the MAIN TOWER building itself is also an eye-catcher: it was the first high-rise building in Europe with a fully glazed façade, which distinguishes it substantially from other, conventional skyscrapers. With 61 floors, 1,090 steps, 26 passenger lifts, 2,550 windows and much more, as early as 2001 it received the IMMOBILIEN AWARD for its particular size and architecture – a building that just has to be seen.
