The Goethe Tower is an observation tower built entirely out of wood and is 43 meters high. It is located on the northern edge of the Frankfurt City Forest in Sachsenhausen (Frankfurt am Main). The tower was built to honor Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, an infamous German writer and poet. It is a great climb to the top, as it has been recently newly constructed, and to look over the city of Frankfurt. The location in the forest makes it an ideal place to visit with family and kids.

You'll find plenty of parking available, hence easily reachable by car, as well as public transportation. There is also a restaurant next to the tower. Close to the tower and restaurant, you will also find a playground suited for younger children, including a water play area during warmer months. The area is also being extended with a labyrinth, however this is still being constructed. Another fun addition to the area is that it is a great place to watch airplanes fly by.

Opening hours:

April 1st through October 31, from 08:00am until latest 20:00 (or until dark)

Fun fact: It is the fifth-tallest wooden construction in Germany after the Jahrtausendturm in Magdeburg, the Eichberg Tower in Emmendingen, the Blumenthal Observation Tower and the Weißtannenturm in Kehl.
