Sunrise view point Frankfurt

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I am my wife plan to see the sunrise tomorrow (30th September) here in Frankfurt (Main). Is there any place from we can catch the sunrise from the horizon or relatively best viewing angle? Unfortunately too many tall buildings around and I doubt if they will be opened on a sunday for public to get on top

 

Any suggestions will be appreciated

Walk along the river and admire the sunrise. Have done this a few times and it is lovely. If you want to be up on a bridge, then maybe the Friedensbruche or the Holbein Bridge. Alternative would be to go up on the Lohrberg, but you would need a car to drive out there. Höchst might be nice too, along the river.

Sunrise, even in Germany, happens long before 10:00.

 

The OP specifically asked for viewing points to watch the sun rise. The Main tower is great anytime, especially at sunset, but not for dawn viewing.

10 AM is too late. Though Deck of Main tower is one of the best viewing points in frankfurt. Lohrberg is also great in its own right. though hard for sunrise view for people without car

Not trying to be Mr Spartypants (OK, maybe) but just looking out the window tells me the Maintower ain't the tallest building around here. Pretty sure it's Commerz and then Messeturm.

You got that right Dan. The Main Tower is NOT the tallest building in Frankfurt. It is the only one with public access to an observation deck though. Until London built the Shard, the Commerz bank was the tallest in the EU. The Messe Turm was the tallest for a long time before that. For those that are interested, there is a cool city model in the Stadt Planungs Amt located on Kurt Schumacher Strasse in the same building as the Judengasse Museum. There, you can see the models up close as well as planned models of buildings that are soon to be constructed. They are open weekdays.

 

The Lohrberg is a good spot, but as noted, it is kind of difficult to get to without a car.

Lohrberg, Feldberg, or if you don't have a car take the u-bahn to the Bonifatiuspark with a blanket and some breakfast. If you just want to photogrtaph, there's a viewing platform/tower along the Autobahn 5 think it's callled Tanusblick.
