Dresdner-Bank-Hochhaus, aka the Silver Tower.Silver Tower is a 166 metre (32 floor) high-rise in Frankfurt, Germany built between 1975 and 1978. Along with Galileo, a newer tower located nearby in the Bahnhofsviertel district, it is part of the headquarters of Dresdner Bank, one of Germany's largest banks.

The top floor has a gallery with floor-to-ceiling windows wrapping around the auditorium and conference room. The interior hallways there have a collection of neon artwork. It housed a swimming pool until it was replaced by a large conference room. A fire destroyed parts of the 32nd floor on April 1, 1998.

The Silver Tower is located across the street from Skyper.
