When I was researching things to do in Frankfurt, the Main Tower was one attraction that kept popping up over and over again, so when we landed in the city, the first thing we did after checking in the hotel was to head there. The Main Tower is one of Frankfurt's most popular skyscrapers, with a viewing platform on the 54th floor open to the public. Many people who have been to Frankfurt say that it is truly the best way to see the city and they are not wrong.
The Main Tower is really easy to find as it stands so tall that you can see it in almost any direction in the city. For those looking to cram in as many tourist attractions as possible during your visit, I really do recommend visiting the tower first as it really introduces you to Frankfurt and it's only a few short steps away from Romerberg and other places you would be likely to visit. The Frankfurt sightseeing bus also stops at the Main Tower if you decide not to walk.
When we arrived at the tower, we were both subject to a bag check due to security reasons and asked for our €6.50 admission fee, which I think is fair as these views are so spectacular and you won't see views as great as this elsewhere in the city. Once we paid, we scanned the tickets through the machine and made our way up in the elevator. For those who have a fear of heights, it can be quite daunting stepping out on a balcony so high, but it is really secure and once you get up there, it is worth the initial fear.
From the top you can see everything from Romerberg to the river Main, the skyscrapers in the financial district to the museum embankment at the opposite side of the city. Despite the weather being so overcast when we got there, everything looked so clear down below. We spent at least 30 minutes admiring the view and once we came back down, we just wanted to go back up again. I think that was the best €6.50 I spent in Frankfurt.
