Eschenheimer Turm, Frankfurt

3.9
Eschenheimer Turm (Eschenheim Tower) was a city gate, part of the late-medieval fortifications of Frankfurt am Main, and is a landmark of the city. The tower, which was erected at the beginning of the fifteenth century, is at once the oldest and most unaltered building in the largely reconstructed Frankfurter Neustadt (new town), now better known as the Frankfurt-Innenstadt (city center).

  • Nice location below an old tower in Frankfurt city. Service was fast. The food was just average for the price that’s being charged. We tried the hot stone steak but was quite disappointed the meat was already placed on the hot stone. The meat should have been placed on a separate platter to allow the diners to cook at their own pace. The service was not great. Grim and unmotivated waiters and waitresses who were asking for tips at the end of the service which made us wonder if the restaurant is underpaying it’s staff.
  • Spectacular view over the city skyline. Moderate prices for drinks. Only downside is that they close pretty early for a Saturday night, 1AM when we were there.
