Tallest Frankfurt High-rises Over Time

This page shows a list of the tallest high-rise buildings of their time in the Frankfurt city region, which were built between 1950 and today. The list is sorted in descending order by building height. Buildings that have been completely renovated in the meantime are treated as removed because their basic building properties have changed.

The precursors to high-rise development are not included in this list

  • Mousonturm (33 meters – 8 floors – 1923-1926)
  • IG Farben Haus (35 meters – 7 floors – 1928-1930)
  • Gewerkschaftshaus (31 meters – 9 floors – 1929-1931)

, since these buildings have less than 10 floors and therefore no longer represent a tall building. Also not included are

, because these are not multi-storey buildings. Until the formerly existing Henninger Turm was built in 1961, the Frankfurt Cathedral was the tallest building in the city.
