1997 – Commerzbank Tower, Frankfurt

Architect: Foster + Partners



One of the landmarks of the highrise centre of Frankfurt, the Commerzbank Tower is currently the tallest building in Europe. The striking exterior with its curving corner is topped by a mast which brings the building to nearly 300 metres tall.

A triangular atrium rises through the entire building from the ground floor, divided by glass partitions. The atrium opens to the exterior wall at different levels, forming 9 large gardens.

Unfortunately only the ground level plaza of the Commerzbank Tower is open to the public. There is no observation platform but a very good view of the building is to be got from the viewing platforms of neighbouring skyscrapers.
