Frankfurt’s dense core along the Main and its huge collection of skyscrapers gives the city one of the most unique skylines in Europe. Some of the best places to see the skyline in all its glory are while walking on the bridges that span the Main River – the ones to the east give the best view. You can also catch a great view of the skyline while riding on the subway from the airport – stay on the right side of the train as you approach Frankfurt Central Station. Of course, you can also get great views of the city from above by climbing one of those skyscrapers. The Main Tower is the only one open to the public and its observation deck is 200 meters up! The best time to go is right before sunset, so you can watch the colors of the sky change and the city’s nightlife snap awake. Even Frankfurt’s sunsets are unique and picturesque, owing to the air pollution that collects in the valley and refracts the sun’s light.
