    The office tower at the eastern end of the former west port of Frankfurt, the Westhafen Tower, is also called the "Ribbed" (apple wine glass) by the people of Frankfurt because of its outer skin made of triangular glass panes.

    The Westhafen Tower is a skyscraper in the Gutleutviertel of Frankfurt am Main. The 112.3 meter high building was completed in 2004. The tower is one of the first buildings in the former Westhafen and is now one of the most famous landmarks on the Main. No other skyscraper is so close to the water and has this impressive view over the financial district with Sachsenhausen and the rest of the city. The Westhafen Tower houses, among others, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA). The skyscraper is often referred to by the people of Frankfurt as "the ribbed" because the glass facade resembles the traditional cider glass of the same name.
