This icon of Calgary is a great picture to keep as a souvenir of Calgary. The Calgary Tower's colours look great in any season and make for some artsy pictures.

We visited Calgary Tower prior to our dinner reservation for the Sky 360 rotating restaurant. From previous reviews I had understood your dinner reservation included access to the tower’s observation deck, but when we arrived we discovered the offer has changed to a “discounted fee” with tickets available fro the gift shop.

The gift shop attendant was very helpful and friendly, offering us helpful advice about our visit, and recommended we not pay the extra fee for access to the observation deck as the views are better from the restaurant level which we would be visiting anyway. I did purchase a lovely t-shirt in the gift shop, but when we asked about an item we had seen displayed in the window, it was unavailable. Apparently, the stock in the gift shop was low as we were visiting outside of peak tourist season, which was a bit disappointing.

We very much enjoyed our experience at the restaurant, and the views are incredible. See my separate review of Sky 360 for further details.

Location: In the heart of Downtown Calgary.

Parking: I didn’t see any affiliated with this site. But I was able to find a street parking located on the street on the other side of this side on the east side. I paid using my parking app, which wasn’t expensive at all & a 10 min walk.

Admission: I did online, I believe there’s an option to do it in person. It’s about $30+ bucks.

Activities: The lineup is about a 20min wait, to accommodate Covid requirements. You go up in the elevator, which doesn’t have glass windows. There is only indoor viewing sections & a glass floor (that I learned from a friendly security officer, was tested by a horse being put on it) & different historic spots. There’s also a small gift shop on your way out, which I made no purchases.
Nothing much to do, other than watching the beautiful view from high up!
Future Visits: Not for myself, only family or friends who haven’t visited.

The view from above is really beautiful, you can watch a movie, walk around and stand on a glassplatform. To sum it up, it will take you 10 minutes if you stretch it a bit, you can stay 30min until you get bored.

Definitely glad we got to take in the sights from up top while we were passing through Calgary! Make sure to catch the short video presentation about the tower while you’re up there and don’t be afraid to walk out on the glass floor!

Similar to the CN Tower. Great show showing the construction of the tower only 10 minutes long. Great views of the city with a glass floor if you dare

We really enjoyed the whole tower experience - there is an audio guide which explains the history of Calgary and the tower, and gives descriptions of key areas/buildings which can be seen from points on the observation deck, with numeric notations for each so you can hear the descriptions as you stand looking at them from the deck.
We went on a clear day, and the view was fantastic, we could see for miles in every direction, with the whole city laid out beneath us. There is even a glass floor, similar to that of the CN Tower, that allows you to look straight down the central tower to the ground below.
Definitely worth the cost and time.
