The fifth largest German city, which is the only one in the whole of Germany to offer a panorama of skyscrapers. Not to mention that 18 of Germany's 20 ta­llest skyscrapers currently stand here. Due to its appearance with New York's Manhattan, Frankfurt is nicknamed Mainhattan (Main River = Main). Another well-known nickname is Bankfurt – thanks to the fact that it is one of the most important financial centers in Europe.

Westhafen Tower

It is located right on the banks of the river Main, so a nice view is offered from the opposite bank.

Garden Tower

The older, 127m high Garden Tower building from 1976 is not so interesting in itself, but its structure allows you to create quite interesting images. Kor when someone parks an electric scooter with her. It should be added that bicycles and scooters are one of the most widely used means of transport in Frankfurt.
