In Westfallen park there is the highest building in the whole region, You cant actually get to the highest point of the tower, but the panorama view is good 130-140 meters high. he panorama balcony is on two levels, so from the upper level, the photographs will be able to make perfect photos. There is excellent vie to the BVB09... More

The view from the Florianturm is beautiful! You can see all the beautiful places of Dortmund. The employees are really kind and help you to go up and down the tower in the elevator. The tower also has a restaurant, but we unfortunately couldn't go in the restaurant because it was full... We went there at 6pm so the next... More

The park that surrounds the tower is quiet and beautiful, a little haven away from the city. The tower itself has a small charge to enter and one has to be accompanied by a staff member in the lift. The view from the top is panoramic - it's useful to have someone with you to point out the landmarks. The... More

This church is a testament to rebirth and rebuilding one's life. It was bombed heavily during the second world war and has taken many years to be brought back to life. I like that they did not try to recreate the old church in the interior but showed it respect through a modern design. I look forward to visiting in... More

Cheap attraction to visit with a lovely view when you get up there, let down by not being able to come down in the lift without staff coming back up. Also to be fair once your up thee other than the view there is nothing. Quite often attractions like this have boards explains what you can see from which point... More

The service was very prompt in getting us both up and down the tower but then again there were so few of us. It would have been helpful to have had photos around the viewing tower explaining what we were looking at.

Great views on a clear day. Nice park around the tower and bumped into the Arsenal team on the way to the tower. Good value.
