Found this by accident next to Deutsche/messie rail station and went up the tower to panoramic viewing platform at top which had a magnificent view of all areas of city-looking down on rail bridge into main rail station was like looking at a model railway with trains every few minutes.

I am not great at heights but did find this ok for viewing. The day we visited it was a bit overcast but felt it was worth it.

A really great vantage point to view the city (from all 360 degrees of the tower). In particular it is a great place to take photos of the bridge and Koln Dom. Highly recommended.

Excellent views of the city. Also very cheap, think it was 2 or 3 euro each. Not much else to say about it as it does what it advertises, brilliant views of Cologne and surrounding areas.

Definitely worth the entrance fee. Go at sunset! We thoroughly enjoyed it. Walked from the cathedral, over the love lock bridge, to here, which was very scenic. There's windows covering everything though with smudges on them which shows in the photos.

Very nice way to get some cityscape photos and look around in general. Worth the €3. Good idea to walk over the bridge, see the locks then go up the top and view it all from above.

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
