Skyscrapers of Frankfurt am Main

The tallest structure in Frankfurt is the Europaturm, which rises 337 metres however… The tallest habitable building in Frankfurt is the Commerzbank Tower, which rises 259 metres and 56 floors. The second-tallest building in the city is the Messeturm, which rises 257 metres tall and has 55 floors. The 10 tallest buildings in Germany are located in Frankfurt.

Frankfurt is one of the few European cities with a large cluster of high rise building in its downtown area; in many other European cities, skyscraper construction was not well received in the past due to the historical value of existing buildings. For this reason, Frankfurt is sometimes referred to as “Mainhattan” (a portmanteau of the local Main river and Manhattan), and Chicago am Main.
