Located in the immediate vicinity of the banking district, the Messeturm is not only an excellent place for business: many of the city's hotspots can also be easily reached from here. Exceptionally practical: the Messeturm is the only skyscraper in Frankfurt with its own entrance to the underground railway. And the Messeturm is also perfectly located in the heart of the city’s road network. The property's dedicated underground garage with almost 900 parking spaces offers comfortable, spacious parking facilities around the clock.

The interface between Frankfurt Messe, the luscious Westend district and the aspiring Europaviertel neighbourhood. Many of the city's attractions give the working day in the Messeturm a successful change of pace.
Restaurants and cafés, museums and culture, schools and children’s daycare centres, fitness studios and spas, nightlife and hotels. Everything is in the immediate vicinity. The shopping centre Skyline Plaza with more than 150 shops and restaurants is especially worth mentioning.
In future, the Messeturm will not only remain the city's most famous and popular skyscraper, but also a building that perfectly combines modern work and quality of life. As part of the extensive Reload project, the Messeturm will be adapted to today's requirements and charged with perceptible new energy, emotion and dynamism. The lobby in particular becomes an exciting place to meet and greet.
Let yourself be inspired.
Come and immerse yourself. Enter the invitingly designed world of the Messeturm Lobby directly from the building’s underground station or underground garage. Modern furniture classics, plants and warm, atmospheric lighting are reminiscent of international hotel flair.
Stylishly start your way to the top: The newly designed lift landing convinces with a bright, friendly appearance and the use of the finest materials.
Day and night, the new Café-Bar is the place-to-be in the Messeturm Lobby. It offers an inspiring space for networking and relaxed breaks with coffee, refreshments and snacks, and becomes a stylish bar in the evening bringing the working day to a perfect end. In summer, an attractive outdoor terrace allows the interior space to elegantly flow outside.
The spacious Messeturm Lounge is the perfect place to take an inspiring break from everyday office life. Plenty of light and comfortable seating combined with lush greenery and a dynamic fountain wall create an all-encompassing, inviting and relaxing place to be.
The Messeturm’s new culture of dining and pleasure. The kitchen focuses on freshness, originality and enjoyment. You can have a relaxed lunch every day, or enjoy a snack or refreshment at the bar anytime.
As part of the extensive Reload project, a “best-of-both-worlds” cooperation experienced its exciting premiere here: star architect Helmut Jahn and interior designer Matteo Thun jointly developed an architecture and interior design concept that gives the Messeturm a whole new radiance.
The result is convincing in every respect.
Millions of people have already entered a Helmut Jahn building. The Chicago-based German is one of today's most famous architects and has realised spectacular projects on all continents in addition to the Messeturm in Frankfurt. Examples include the Xerox Center in Chicago, the Veer Towers in Las Vegas, the Sony Center am Potsdamer Platz, or the Leatop Plaza skyscraper in Guangzhou.
The spectacular prelude to the lobby captivates with pure symmetry and clear lines, and it combines light and transparency with the best visibility. The impressive curved 18 m x 3 m high insulating glass elements, used for the first time worldwide in this type of construction, represent an impressive technical innovation. They emphasise the radiance and the new vibrancy of the Messeturm.
Hotels such as the SIDE in Hamburg and the Marriott in Venice, boutiques for Porsche Design and Hugo Boss, watches for Bulgari and Swatch. South Tyrol’s Matteo Thun is one of the most sought-after designers of our time and moves confidently between the disciplines of architecture, interior design and product design.
He has also proven his unique design signature and exquisite taste for the interior design of the new Messeturm lobby.

Few Frankfurt skyscrapers have been photographed as often as the Messeturm and few present themselves so aesthetically - from every angle.
Its multi-facetted nature was honoured in an artistic photo competition. The images taken by the official competition winner and photo artist Wolfgang Mothes are particularly impressive and show the Messeturm in a whole new light.
