‘Westhafen Tower’ is translated as West Harbor Tower.
It is a cylindrical glass and steel structure over one hundred metres high and just under forty metres wide. It stands at West Harbor, by the marina and the river Main.
At the foot of the tower is a café, bar and restaurant.
Westhafen Tower is a new and high-profile landmark, highlighting Frankfurt’s stylish and international reputation.
Locals warmly refer to as “the giant apple wine glass”. If you’re not sure what an apple wine glass looks like, then while you’re staying in Frankfurt, even if it is a short stay or stopover, go to a bar or restaurant in Frankfurt and ask for an Apple Wine. After some delicate questions about what kind of apple wine you would like (sweet, sour, pure), and if you would like one glass or a jug (a jug is called a Bembel, and has enough capacity for four or eight glasses), you will soon be drinking from an authentic apple wine glass.
The criss-cross patterns (enabling on a firm grip on the apple wine glass) are what you will see on the Westhafen Tower.
Visitors to Frankfurt will see the unmistakable Westhafen Tower as they walk along the River Main.
The Westhafen Tower is not open to the public. It is primarily commercial office space and is highly sort after in Frankfurt.
At the Westhafen Marina next to the tower are upmarket river-front apartments.
