One of the best ways to get a feel of a city upon a first visit is to climb up to the highest vantage point and take in the views. Frankfurt’s been through quite a lot in the last century, and it doesn’t come close to the beauty of other European cities, but seeing a bustling energetic city from above is always a treat, especially if it’s open air. On my first day in Frankfurt touring the central area I made my way up to the Main Tower observation deck, the highest you can get in Frankfurt, standing tall at 200m.
This is what you can expect to see once you’re up there…
There’s also a restaurant up there, if you want to combine that with a drink or a meal. You can do the whole thing in less than an hour. A good way to start your Frankfurt day.
