Gives a nice view of the city and into the far distance, including the mountains. Definitely worth the money.

It is cool to check out this tower. It has a very old spiral staircase that goes up to the top and you are rewarded with great 360 degree views of the city. Only 3 Euro

This is on the tick list for tourists and you would feel you had missed out if you didn't do it, so go ahead, it is what is says on the tin, a fantastic view of the city. Best to go when you have visited various places and then you can point out where you've been!

The view was fabulous from the observation deck. Great perspective of the city and the Rhine. It is the first lift we have been in that measures it's progress in metres rather than floors.

The staff in the ground floor were not... More

Fabulous views of the city and worth a look. Entrance price is reasonable. The restaurant and cafe were closed when we visited unfortunately.
