This is the best way to view the skyline and builds. Great views of the Cathedral and impressive views of the rail network. You have to walk a fair bit and cross the rhine to get here.

Take the Hohenzollern Bridge from the side of the Dom to the small blue cylinder building for an aerial view of the city. Groups of 5 and above pay €2.50 each. Viewing gallery is on the 28th floor and is outdoor. You can walk all around and take some great shots. Decals on the glass panels shows you what buildings... More

Worth a visit to see the cathedral from further away but we were only up there for 10 minutes! €3 each is okay for what you see but it's very basic, just a viewing platform.

The walk to this attraction takes you over the railway bridge , the fences on both sides are covered in "love locks" hence the name love lock bridge . It is a pleasant walk to the tower and costs just €3 to go up . The views are good .

If you are going to Cologne make sure you come here! Is just across the river from the main station and gives fantastic views of the area. Is a very cheap attraction to with an adult costing €3 and you can wander round and take in the sights in your own time. Around the safety glass landmarks and interesting buildings... More

This is a great place to see all of Cologne. It costs about 4€ and theres a bit of a wait on busy days but worth it to see the panoramic view. The pictures dont come out crystal clear because the glass has normal scratches but they come out well enough.

It just worth it to take the fast elevator to the top of the triangle tower. The entrance fee is only 3 Euros. It just perfect for photographers, when you wait for the golder hour you can take a stunning shot of cologne.

The view is fantastic, you can see the entire city just like that. Not crowded place at all, probably because of non touristic season. Pretty cheap-3euros per a person. To be in Koln and to go at the top is a crime!😎👌🏻
