Nice view from the top of the building, with nice weather you can see far away. On the windows they have indicated the name of all the point of views. Interesting to go.

Nice view, but the tower is not high enough. You have a kind of view above Cologne but then again, not high enough to see much further. The lift is a bit small, the price is OK.

Well worth the small fee to have the 360 ° views of the city of Cologne. Even on an overcast day, the views were breathtaking. Easily combined with a walk from the Dom via Hohenzollernbrücke.

For only €3 you get 28th floor views. 360 degrees. Elevator access with only a few steps at the end. Although people can't help themselves, graffiti on the walls. 😐 Worth every bit the journey across the Rhein River.

My tip would be like i did, visit the site an hour before closing time when not much people are around any more. Then you can have a relaxing time and sit in the darkness and enjoy the nice colorful reflections over the city and Kolner Dome.

A really recommended sight-seeing building. The buildings, monuments and other landmarks that you can see from the top are written and drawn nicely on the glass so you know what you are looking at. And for 3 € entrance one can make nothing wrong.

It was right behind our hotel so very convenient. The admission for the elevator is EUR 3,- and it takes you to the 28th (if I remember correctly) floor in just a few seconds. There you find a 360 degree view on the city. This rooftop is open until 23.00hrs so enjoying the evening/night view is also possible. Really worth... More
