Florian with a view

We came on a grey day in February and it was very cold and windy!! Lovely views of the immediate area but not much further.

A good example of german engineering in a very nice park (Westfalenpark). So if you go there you'll have a tall tower to see from above the park and the city. The entrance in the park is 1.5 euros/person and the tower acces is 2.5 euros/person, but well spended money. We visited in January so I belive the park is... More

The views of Dortmund were spectacular, however, be prepare to wait to get the lift to the top. We went in December and had to wait about 15 minutes. So I can imagine the wait during the summer would be longer, but it will be worth it.

This tower is situated in Westfahlen park and even if one is unable to enter the tower it is an impressive sight especially at dusk when the lights come on.

Since there isn't that much to be seen from the top (Dortmund doesn't have any interesting landmarks), I didn't find this attraction special. However, the tickets were not expensive and the tower is quite high with a nice view on the surrounding scenery. Anyone living in Dortmund should probably visit it once, but it's not worth coming back.

Well worth the 5.50 euro fee for the views. Lift is mega fast and has a metre counter above door.. Convert metres to storeys as you whizz up and you know you are going quickly ! Views are amazing but as other reviewers have mentioned a display board to tell you what you are looking it would greatly improve the... More

would be even better if the viewing platform had some explanation of the different things you are looking at (names of churches, distant towns, that sort of thing) and the café was open. Still worth a visit and inexpensive (2.5 euros)
