MAIN TOWER EXPERIENCE: Frankfurt at Glance

Hi, Everyone

Have you ever wondered how would a city look like from above? Have you ever questioned how it would make you feel to be watching your surroundings from an altitude? Well, I did. That’s why I decided to escape a little while to what is considered to be one of Frankfurt’s tallest building: The Main Tower.

It was earlier this March that I decided to experience a different kind of activity; challenging my fear of height and allowing the peace of the panoramic view in front of me, rip every fearful feeling away from me.  Heading to the Main Tower was a good start as it is actually 240 meters tall, as the antenna is part of it too.


If you do not reside in Frankfurt, there are several routes that can lead you to the main tower. I personally used the subway, and I got out at the Taunusanlage stop. I did love the architectural details of that subway and couldn’t resist taking pictures of it. Tell me what these neon light make you think of.


Although that subway looks like a place you could have fun, you may still want to head outside. You’ll be amazed to see what awaits you.






Beautiful streets, breathtaking architecture and skyscrapers all piled quite next to each other. The main tower is located at the: Neue Mainzer Straße 52-58. You cannot get lost once out of the subway. A friendly local can direct you to better find the street. It’s 5 minutes by walk to the subway station.


The building is very modern and very attractive as it looks it’s made with glass. Quite impressive. When entering you’ll be struck by this gigantic logo on the wall. Readable, but I have no clue of what it actually means.



The customer service wasn’t the best since I waited a little while till the ladies there were done talking. Entrance fee: 7.50 euros for adults. However, students in Germany actually have a discount and pay 5 euros.



Once your tickets are handed to you, you’re been controlled as if you are boarding a plane: Both your bag and you are checked. Afterward, you get to scan your ticket and you can board in the main tower fast elevator. Panoramic view, here I come!





The weather was not at its best but I chose to not allow that ruin my experience. If you are not afraid of height and if you love photography, then you’ll love hanging up there.









I have enjoyed that escape and loved the view from there. I will be returning for sure, and will be coming with better, and less moody pictures!

That is it, blissful people! I hope you’ve enjoyed the post. Drop me a comment and Keep up with my adventures by subscribing to my email list,  and by following me on facebookinstagram, twitter, pinterest & bloglovin!

  20. Megan says:

    I am terrified of heights but since we have been travelling, i seem to always find myself going up every tower or view deck (my hubby loves a good pano shot!) so I would love to visit frankfurt and do this. We have been to Berlin, but really Germany has so many great places we still need to explore!

    • Pauline says:

      Hi, Megan! I was as terrified as you! But glad to see that you find your strength when hubby is around 😉 same here (not wed yet). Germany is filled with tons of great sites. I hope to show them here 🙂 Follow me on my social and newsletter to keep up! 🙂 x

    I am terrified of heights. I hope all the beauty will help me get over it. Or else I hope I can enjoy the view just the same on my hands and knees ^^,

    • Pauline says:

      hahaha, Lady Chi! I used to be scared of heights just like you, but I firmly believe that everything big starts small. It was my baby step to fight it: thought I’d fly 🙂 it was so windy! Follow me on my social and newsletter! 😉

  23. Tonya says:

    Wow. Those views are amazing! It really hate it when people in customer service aren’t very helpful or friendly. I mean, that’s there job. But I’m glad you were able to get to your destination and see that stunning view.

    • Pauline says:

      Thank you, Tonya! That’s why I love photography. Glad you loving the views!!! The customer service wasn’t friendly at all, but hey, she couldn’t take my joy away 🙂 Follow me on my social and newsletter 😉

  24. Jasmin N says:

    Oh that’s so cool! My grandpa has told me so much about Frankfurt. I need to visit there one day for sure 🙂

  25. Is it shaky at all up there? I hate heights but I always go up places anyway if there’s a good view. Just checking to see how much I’ll hate it. 🙂

    • Pauline says:

      Hello, Beth! It’s not shaky at all up there! Don’t worry, going all the way up there is a risk worth taking, trust me! 🙂

  26. Helene says:

    This view is really amazing! So many beautiful pictures! Great presentation! Helene

    • Pauline says:

      Hi, Kitty! The experience was definitely as you said and I encourage you to go beyond what you call limit and do what you love! 🙂 Glad to have inspired you!

  29. Nice view from the main tower. I’m living in Peak District England.. cliffs and hills are my daily view. Your photographs make me miss living in a big city with skyscraper.

    • Pauline says:

      Hello, Fillia! I agree with you: the view from there is breathtaking! I believe, the view from where you are now is as beautiful as the view that you get from big cities! 🙂
