Demolished Towers

This page shows a list of the tallest high-rise buildings in the Frankfurt city region which were already demolished.

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

  • Mousonturm (33 meters – 8 floors – 1923-1926)
  • IG Farben House (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, since these buildings have less than 10 floors and therefore no longer represent a tall building.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

  • the former brewery silo Henninger Tower (120 meters – 1959-1961)
  • the FrankfurtTelevision Tower (331 meters – 1976-1979)

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