At just 3 euros for entrance, the skyscraper was the perfect way to see the sites of Cologne. Significant landmarks are shown on the glass for you to identify as you look out across the Rhine with great views of the Cathedral. The Triangle is just a short walk across the love lock bridge and I highly recommend a quick... More

The view from the panorama is good. If you want to get an idea of how big the city is or just see the surroundings, then go have a look. The most important buildings are marked on the glass, so it's easier for you to find them.

My friend, who lives in Cologne, took me up there before we did our ground level sightseeing to give me an overview of where I was. It cost just 3 euros to go up the 26 stories in the lift then a short flight of steps to the views of the city and beyond. It was fairly cloudy when I... More

The Koeln Triangle is well worth a visit ,especially on a beautiful sunny day with a,cloudless blue sky. It costs 3 euro to enter and you take a lift to the top. There is a short flight of stairs to climb before you go through the doors to the outside,but nothing too strenuous! The view point is a 360 degree... More

Experience of Cologne in general very poor. This tower offered the best view of the city from here and if coming from the old town you get to walk over the famous Deutzer Brücke a must for any padlock enthusiast. However in my honest opinion save yourself the time money and disappointment of visiting cologne opt instead to look at... More

Many people see the Dome first and then they cross the bridge and up to the top in Koeln Triangle. It´s a great viewpoint but not breathtaking and you cannot compare it with the Eiffel tower or Empire State Building or similar. You spend at most an hour on the top, you try to get good pictures, and you try... More

Just across the bridge from the Cathedral (don't forget to take a padlock with you to attach to the bridge) very easy to get to and bike racks just out side. Only €3 for an adult. There's a lift up to the top then a short walk up a flight of stairs. Great views over cologne although it was quite... More

While we are there, it is boiling hot. So we just took a some photos and went back. You need to find the right angle of the buildings in Cologne.

There are outlines of the attractions on the windows on top of the building. If you get the angle just right you can see the outline overlapping the attraction. You can see the whole Cologne here which is very nice.
