Observation Deck
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.

  • Nowhere else you can get a so great and at the same time free views in Frankfurt. The Goethe Tower is located in the Frankfurt City Park, so you can connect at the same time still a beautiful walk with a visit of the tower.

  • 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.
