It took almost an hour to get through the line to the top. Didn't seem too busy so would not want to be there at the busy tourist season. 7.50 euro is also a bit pricey for the attraction. If you are lucky to be up there on a good day to see the sun set it makes it better.

We waited for 30 min before we could go up. The view is definitely nice but if you don't have time to visit, don't worry about it.

Came here on the 17th April 2017 around 1120am to visit but was told by the staff that the weather was not good. Then we decided to buy a fridge magnet BUT one of the women at the reception counter was being so RUDE for no reason! She didn't let us look at the fridge magnets closer for us to... More

Great view! In two words, that could be the entire review. As a fan of high places, this was a must-do, albeit on a rainy and windy and bitingly cold October day. A nearly-360 degree view over Frankfurt makes it totally worth it. Bad weather meant no queues at the bottom, and unobstructed picture-taking time.

Worth doing if you have an hour to spare. View as you would expect is spectacular. Q in the middle of the day is too long and not worth the wait. Cost is a little pricey for a lift journey.

If you can survive all the steps up and squeezing past people coming down the views over Frankfurt are spectacular! 66 metres up it feels a lot higher looking down on the main church roof far below. At 3 euro it's more than worth a visit if it's a nice day!
