Impressive and informative view of city

After getting a very rapid lift and after a short flight of stairs you get a great panoramic view of the city. There are also helpful pictures indicating key landmarks.

We got the metro here which was inexpensive at €1.90 each, although we did walk it another day over Hohenzollern bridge which took about fifteen minutes and was lovely. 28 floors up the views are great. The lift is very safe and you don't feel it moving when you're in it very much. I would recommend doing this. On windy... More

This is inexpensive, and worth walking over the Hohenzollern Bridge to go up. The glass walls are a nuisance if the sun is reflecting on them for photography, but other than that, you won't see better views over Cologne, unless you're in an aeroplane.

Great view of the city! Very easy to access, one of the highlights of the trip. The entrance is only 3 euro, but be aware that you cannot pay by card.

I imagine the view from this tower is great on most days, however, I was exceptionally blessed to be visiting in very hot weather. Managed to time my visit for about an hour before sunset and was rewarded with stunning views as the sun went down. For 3€ it's well worth the price as you can stay there until closing... More

We got on the top of the tower just as the sun was going down and the view was amazing! We also liked that the windows had miniature versions of different Koeln buildings that could be seen from the respective spots so if one had some patience, they could set their phone in the perfect position to take a picture...

360 degrees of view up top, which is a good way to see Cologne and its beauty. The walk across the bridge from the dom/train station is really nice as well.

Cheap price to get in and the tower provides a fantastic view of the whole city. Well recommended - obviously best done on a sunny day!

Great value at €3 pp to go to the top and what spectacular views. Tip would be to do it as the sun goes down to take fantastic pictures. Well worth a walk over the 'Lovelock' bridge but please note this is basically the only thing to do on that side of the Rhine
