Goetheturm, Frankfurt

4.4
#22 of 52 in Sightseeing in Frankfurt
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
The top of Goetheturm provides the perfect spot for sprawling views of Frankfurt and the surrounding countryside. Set in one of the city's northern forests, the tower reaches a height of 43 m (141 ft), making it the tallest wooden observation platform in Germany. Climb to the top of the tower to soak in the views before heading back down to spend the rest of the afternoon at the adjoining playground and wooded park. Take a picnic with you, or stop for a coffee at the park cafe. A visit to Goetheturm represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Frankfurt trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • I was not sure whether this attraction was worth visiting. After climbing at the top of the tower, I realised that he decision was right. You can see Frankfurt from the top of the tower.  more »
  • It was fun to climb to the top of the tower. The views from the top are great. If you have a car, parking nearby is free, and the tower itself is also free.  more »

  • You can climb the stairs in the tower from April to October. Up there, there is a beautiful view of Frankfurt. Downstairs there is a big playground for Kids and also a restaurant.
  • Nice place and great view over Frankfurt.
  • If you like views and/or taking pictures this observation deck is the place.
  • Insider tip: Avoid the main tower, go to the goethe turm for a great view and it costs nothing
  • A beautiful view to Frankfurt:)
