If you wish to have the best view of cologne, I recommend to go on the top of this building. A very fast lift will take at the 28hth floor in few seconds and you will have an amazing view on the cathedral.

I've followed the advice to visit the tower in the evening. I had time in the afternoon, which meens shooting to the sun, so it made sense to me to wait. The sunset was amazing! The view is well worth the 3 euro entrance fee (there are no barriers for disabled). If you want to see another city of light,... More

I recommend this place as the view is very nice. You see the whole city from above. It is really good that there are labels on the glass and some pictures to help you what can you see in the different directions.

The view from the tower is very nice. But it's all closed glass, no holes to make those beautiful pictures without reflex from the Windows. On top of the tower is also nothing like a little shop for a drink/snack or souvenir.

We took some lovely photos up here. Its a must see as its panoramic. Be prepared the lift will stop the floor below the top floor and you will have to walk up stairs although if you have a physical disability there will be a separate lift.

We went up in the tower just after 10:00, as it typically gets more crowded throughout the day. The view was fantastic, as it allows you a birds view 360 degrees over the city.

This was my third or fourth visit to this viewing platform, some 30 or so storeys high above Cologne. It's good value. The lift manages the 28 storeys almost imperceptively and then we took the stairs to the viewing platform. There was a party of schoolchildren excitedly running about, but only for a short time, and we found a friendly... More

Cheap entry. Beautiful views of the city. We got some beautiful pictures. Its so hard to capture the Dom in a picture because its vastness but we got a great shot while up there. Short walk from the Dom as well.

I went there with my girlfriend and it was really nice and romantic to see the view of the city from this place. I suggest to go there maybe at the end of your trip so that you can recognize all the places where you have been before. The icon of the buildings on the glasses help a lot to... More
