I enjoyed the view and the beautiful park arround the tower. I recommend it, however watch out that you go there in a calm day, the wind up there can be really strong.

Once I got up the tower, I was able to see how big is the park surrounding it, and how beautiful it is!

The Florian Tower offers a great view of Dortmund and the surroundings. It closes at 18hrs during summer time. After visiting the tower you can chill out in the park. The entrnace to the tower is 5 €

Westfalen park is worth a visit if you are looking for something to do in Dortmund. If you make it to the park, make sure you go to the top of the tower for the best views of the area. As others have said the restaurant is something to avoid, but just consider it an adventure to give you a... More

This tower is a complete reminder of Toronto's CN tower in its appearance although the CN might be more modern and taller.

We attended they highest point of 151 m. Beautiful view of Dortmund like on your hand. Very windy :) Restaurant was not working at that time, however I think it would be great to have cup of coffee and enjoy view.

Lovely park. Easy to get to on the U Banh. We went in December as we were visiting the Christmas market Don't know why Jason H from Chelmsford bothered going anywhere in Dortmund as he seemed to be 'bored senseless' all the time! How sad!

The Florian Tower offers a great panorama over Dortmund but it could be much better. The lifts are old and the staff is not very friendly. I think they were a couple of students, didn't share any information, the lady at the ticket office didn't speak any english and couldn't give any details. There is a restaurant at the top... More
