Interesting view of Cologne

See the whole Cologne from here. Very fantastic views from top. Not really a best place for taking pictures as the whole thing has outer glass.

I am for sure a lover of seeing cities from above and every single city I went I did it. This is not the highest in the world but for sure one which is worth going to. I arrived there 30 min before dawn and could see the "sunset" and difference on the city between day and night. the most... More

We walked to this from our Hotel (Hotel Allegro) . We visited mid December 15 and it doesn't open until 12 midday. We did not realise this and got there early, trust me apart from this attraction there is nothing else to do or see even the coffee shops were either closed or hiding. Ended up going to McDonalds at... More

Simply a great view of the city. Nice panorama! Fairly cheap, i think it was €3.50. I think it was worth it!

Look not sure if its worth the walk over the bridge for, unfortunately there was no information on top in english so I had no idea what I was looking at. it was cheap though 3 euro so can;t complain on that front. I would say check it out, just don't have any great expectations.

An alternative tower experience to the cathedral with a lift, but this is only an open top roof space, there are no indoor facilities or cafe and there are no tourist facilities near "Triangle Panorama"

After walking across the love lock bridge we ended up at the KolnTriangle. The building didn't look open at first but we tried a few doors and found the reception. It cost €3 to go up to the viewing balcony. From the top you can see all of Cologne and the windows around the building show you what famous landmark... More

Went early in morning so avoided busy crowds and ques. Views amaing once you get to the top. Clear dry day would be best as slightly wet when we went up and rain on glass not great for viewing or photos, still worth it though.

panoramic view over kiln and the area. You will see for afar and cover the old city and the new parts. Its a short walk from the dom but worth it in a good visibility day

Not that expensive and a really nice view. Unfortunately now restaurant on the roof. It is just for the view and nothing more.
