Well worth the €3 admittance as the views are amazing. We went at night when the city was lit up. Note, this is the top floor and there is no roof so imagine it wouldn’t be much fun in heavy rain! We didn’t realise but...More

We took a nice stroll across the Rhine to the triangle. Couldn’t believe that it was only €3 to go to the top, an absolute bargain. The wait was only 5 mins or so for the 30 second ride to the top. It offers fantastic...More

If you fancy a fantastic view over the city at sunset then this is the place to be. It’s a few euros to head up to the top. It’s not overcrowded which is good!

Visited here in December 2018 as part of a holiday to Cologne. We took the lift to the spectator gallery at the top and enjoyed the most stunning views over Cologne. We felt it was exceedingly good value for €3. I would definitely recommend.

You can only pay cash. Take your time to walk to the river. You can cross the river past the subway bridge.

Cologne Triangle provides the best views of the city. At a price you can’t argue with €3, it’s a must. I would advice that you plan ahead of your visit as it was a little busy when I went and to be honest now wishing...More

The place offers you an opportunity to take a very nice picture of the city. It’s the main angle of the city, that captures the railway bridge and the cathedral at the same time.

At 3€ per person, you can't get a better value than this for seeing the Cologne skyline. It's easy to get to by either walking across the lock bridge from the city center or main train station or via the Hop On Hop Off tour...More
