One of the most popular Frankfurt tours among both tourists and local citizens alike is The Main tour. This tour takes you down the river past a number of must see gorgeous medieval castles, historical spots and beautiful scenic landmarks.

Among the many attractions in Frankfurt the whole family can enjoy, the Main Tower is a must visit. Being the tallest building in Frankfurt, the Main Tower offers a complete view of the entire city. Expedia recommends a visit to the tower after you've eaten dinner, as the best time to view the entire city is when the lights are on.
