Every day, around 10,000 people walk across Frankfurt’s most attractive bridge to get from one side of the Main River to the other. The footbridge is also popular with newly loved-up couples. They attach padlocks to the steel structure to symbolize the sealing of their love. With its countless colorful love locks and the skyline panorama, the Eiserner Steg is the perfect photo location.
#4 Main Tower
Another absolutely first-class photo spot for you. The viewing platform of the Main Tower is situated 200 meters up, providing the highest point from which you can view the city. The lift takes you up to lofty heights. At the top, as well as a restaurant and a lounge area, a unique view over Frankfurt awaits you.
When it comes to Germany’s most dramatic glass buildings, award is definitely going to the My Zeil, a shopping mall in the center of Frankfurt. Roman architect Massimiliano Fuksas was inspired by the rivers when designing this building. Fluid shape, transparent glass and steel shell which plunges from an undulating roof to draw natural light throughout all six levels of retail space. All that glass will help you to create interesting selfies and also amazing architectural images. Did you know My Zeil has the 42-meter-long escalator, the longest interior escalator in Europe. It will take from the bottom straight to the top of the building!

Some of the most beautiful skyline shots of Mainhattan’s skyscrapers are taken from the Main River. So why not snap Frankfurt by boat or walk by the Main?

From these bridges you can capture most amazing images of the Mainhattan’s skyline.
