Frankfurt: The City of Skyscrapers
By Flores Browns



One of the oldest cities in the world, Frankfurt has shown a marvelous growing since its founding day. Most commonly known today as “Frankfurt Am Main” meaning “Frankfurt on the Main”, the city is the most important commercial centre of Germany. The city attracts the world tycoons who travel through business class flights to Frankfurt to attend several business conferences. The city is the largest financial centre of Europe and is counted among the few European cities that possess the cluster of skyscrapers.

Commerzbank Tower, situated in the heart of the city, is the tallest building not only in Frankfurt but also in the European Union. The most striking features of this tower are the green sky gardens and the light illumination at night in a constantly changing its scheme. The building is the centre for many corporate offices where the entrepreneurs from across the world come to work through business flights and other airline flights of Delta Airlines, Continental Airlines, American Airlines and other international airways.

Messeturn comes second into the list of tallest buildings in Frankfurt. Fair Tower, the famous trade fair ground of the city, is yet another important landmark. Many international and national trade fair events are organized here. People from across the world travel through different international airlines that offer business class seats in their air flights to Frankfurt and exhibit their products and services. The building was the tallest until 1997 when it was overtaken by the Commerzbank Tower.

Urban Entertainment Centre situated between the trade fair grounds, banking district and central railway station, occupies the next tallest building list in Frankfurt. The building, which is a kind of multi-structured entertainment centre, is on the process of completion and will contain live theaters and cinemas, commercial offices, mixed retail and a 45-storey hotel over a three-level below-grade parking garage. The unique site is expected to draw the investors from world over arriving through business class flights and other air flights to set up their corporate offices in the city.

Westendstrase is the headquarters of DZ Bank and is the fourth tallest city in Europe. The important and most unique feature of the building is that its front side consists of fine, golden granite, making it whiter and brighter than skyscrapers visible from afar. Many airlines that arrive in the city do mention about all the tall buildings that their business class air passengers can visit during their visit. The crown at the top of the building is heated during the winter to prevent the forming of icicles during winter season.
