Goetheturm, Frankfurt

(4.3/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • As Frankfurt must have one at least once the Tower have climbed. When weather is nice, you have great views of the Frankfurt skyline from here. The adjacent playground is ideal for smaller children or make a walk through the town forest.

  • Unfortunately not more so neat as earlier still a classic destination for families! With mini golf course & water game

  • For me and my girlfriend the first address if we go for a walk. As former geocacher, I also know that here and here some good can be found. Ideal place for children, due to large playground. The restaurant next door is ok for Frankfurt conditions. Selection of ice not huge but still tastes (Mövenpick) In the summer when the weather is always well attended. By the way: The view from above is worth in any case

  • Insider tip: Avoid the main tower, go to the goethe turm for a great view and it costs nothing
  • fantastic place to spend time with kids. I would give 5 stars but very noisy planes taking off from near by airport are really annoying
  • Tolle Aussicht
  • Wonderful view of the city and surroundings.
  • The best viewing point in the whole city. Free entrance.
