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.

Great view of Cologne from the other side of the river that includes the cathedral and the bridge! I thought it was worth the cost

Cologne looks fabulous from top and there are tiny images of places that you can see from any given place. If you get the angle right, the image actually overlaps the real building. If you are taking a pram, you can use the elevator for the physically challenged and go straight till the deck. Otherwise, there is a flight of... More

We came here during a spell of really inclement weather (raining non-stop for 2 days, day & night!) & it was still well-worth it. Yes, we couldn't see as far as the Siebengebirge or Drachenfels that day but there was still plenty to look at. It's especially nice to see the Dom from a different perspective. Do go…& walk back...

This is THE place to go for a good view of the city. A lot of people tend to make the mistake and go up the Dom Tower. Don't do that, it is a waste of your time and money. go to the Koeln Triangle, the view is much better, as you can actually see the Dom and the old... More

The KoelnTriangle is about a 10-15 walk from the Dom across the bridge. The observation has beautiful views of Cologne and the surrounding area.

This place is exactly what the name suggests - PANORAMA KölnTriangle, a panoramic view of Cologne at the top of a triangle-ish building. No overpriced cafe/bar/restaurant, no cheap and tacky merchandise, no souvenir photograph, just the best views available looking over the whole of Cologne, and beyond. The admission fee was so much less than I had expected it to... More

A must do activity whilst in Cologne! A stunning view of the entire city, with spacious viewing platform and extremely cheap entrance fee! It cost my partner and I €3 each to go up the tower with no time limit on how long you can stay up there. Easy access from the bridge. (Which is a nice walk too.) Well... More

Koeln Triangle is great platform for viewing panorama landscape of Cologne as well as nearby cities as Leverkusen including Rhine river. The good thing is that you do not need so much time to enjoy up there. For us, i think 30 minutes maximum would be needed. However, in this NRW area, it is the most raining part of Germany... More
