Frankfurt’s architecture is as colourfully diversified as its population. The very first high-rises went up back in 1920s.

While the most famous of the modern high-rise buildins are the Messeturm designed by Helmut Jahn, the Commerzbank Tower designed by Norman Foster, the MAIN TOWER with observation platform and the new ECB.
