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.

Rude staff in elevator and no explanations. The view is beautiful. That's where it stops. The restaurent is awful. Filled with children who jumps on seat,run everywhere and the place is understaff. No ice to make mix drinks,no chocolate or cinnamon for cappucino,menu is poor. Was left with dirty plates for over 1 hour. The explanation bord is out dated... More

There is excellent vie to the BVB09... More
