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.

Was in town for the football with my young son. We had time to kill and visited the Florianturm. All I can say is Wow. Great views of the city including a great view of the stadium. There are viewers to use for €1 and a revolving restaurant that sells nice cake. Well worth a visit if your in town.

Outside of the tower, there is a lady that takew you in the elevator and gets you up to the tower's ground. Amazing amazing amazing view! All Dortmund in 360 degrees view. It's breathtaking!

We saw the great view although we did not stay long due to the wind and then we had something to eat at the revolving restaurant. After that we went for a walk at the park. It was an overall great afternoon and I strongly recommend to everyone who visits Dortmund not to miss this place especially on sunset time.
