If you want a quick view of what Cologne has to offer, then this is your stop to see the beautiful city of Cologne, with major landmarks visible in the city center area.

A must when visiting Cologne. On a clear day, you can pretty much see the entire city and take some amazing photos. Entrance fee is only 3 Euro if I'm not mistaken.

Reason why I am giving this attraction only "Average" rating is, that you are a bit disappointed if you get up there to take photographs, specially in the evening.

Just across the river from the cathedral lies the Koln Triangle, a skyscraper which you can go up. For just 3 euros you can get the lift up for amazing panoramic views of the city ans surrounding area. Great for getting photos of the cathedral!

3 euro to get in and what a view. Only problem was no seats to sit on to enjoy the view for a while and only one lift to take you to the top so in busy times you will be waiting a while.

Well worth a visit. Only €3 entry and 29th floor via smooth and quick lift. Amazing 360 degree views, guided by etched landmark names on glass case. Great views of bridges, Dom etc.
