Photo: Skyline Frankfurt Financial District

The skyline of the Frankfurt financial district is lit up both by the sunset and the lights of the buildings as another day ends for the workers in the financial sector. The Messeturm and Westendstrasse 1 skyscrapers are known for their height.

The pink sunset in the sky above the skyline of the Frankfurt Financial District bathes the entire section of the city in a warm glow as all the buildings are lit up at the end of another work day. The Messeturm and Westendstrasse 1 skyscrapers are two of the tallest buildings in Frankfurt so they are clearly visible from all over the city, but especially in the Financial District.

Messeturm is a skyscraper that means 'fair tower' in German. It is not only the second tallest building in Frankfurt, but it is also the second tallest in the whole of the European Union. It is 843 feet tall with 63 floors, that are used for office space. It was built in 1991 and was considered to be the tallest building in Europe until it was usurped from its title in 1997 by the Commerzbank Tower, which is also in Frankfurt. ... continue below the picture...

... It is easily recognizable from the 119.1 feet high pyramid on top of the skyscraper.

Westendstrasse 1 is the third tallest building in Frankfurt, but also in the rest of Germany. It was completed in 1993 and is the headquarters of the DZ Bank. It is 682 feet high and is easily identifiable by its whiter colour as it is made of fine golden granite on the outside. The large ring beam on the top of the skyscraper is what makes the building so easy to identify, and interestingly in the winter it is heated so that icicles cannot form on the outside and then drop down and fatally hurt anyone walking by below.

The Financial District of Frankfurt is a very important area of the city, as Frankfurt is the financial centre of Germany. These two buildings mentioned here and the many others are what make an interesting skyline in the city of Frankfurt.
