Westfalen park is worth a visit if you are looking for something to do in Dortmund. If you make it to the park, make sure you go to the top of the tower for the best views of the area. As others have said the restaurant is something to avoid, but just consider it an adventure to give you a... More

This tower is a complete reminder of Toronto's CN tower in its appearance although the CN might be more modern and taller.

We attended they highest point of 151 m. Beautiful view of Dortmund like on your hand. Very windy :) Restaurant was not working at that time, however I think it would be great to have cup of coffee and enjoy view.

Lovely park. Easy to get to on the U Banh. We went in December as we were visiting the Christmas market Don't know why Jason H from Chelmsford bothered going anywhere in Dortmund as he seemed to be 'bored senseless' all the time! How sad!

The Florian Tower offers a great panorama over Dortmund but it could be much better. The lifts are old and the staff is not very friendly. I think they were a couple of students, didn't share any information, the lady at the ticket office didn't speak any english and couldn't give any details. There is a restaurant at the top... More

The tower is situated in Westfalen park which is easy to get to on the U Bahn. The entry was 5 euros and the lift to the viewing platform at 142m takes about 30 seconds. It really does give fantastic views of the whole city even when the weather is slightly overcast and the wind is blowing straight through you.... More

Great attraction and the wind on the day made it quite a challenge to stay upright, all to the amusement of others. Fantastic view and would highly recommend.

Went up to the top one day trying to kill time. Ended up back on the floor within 5 minutes. Average at best, nothing to look at. Bored senseless.

It was a nice experience.We enjoyed the view from the highest level of the tower and we took photos. It was kind of windy and cold at that time so we couldn't stay too much up there. We went to the restaurant, which looked nice and had great looking cakes exposed in the glass fridge. But after staying for about... More
