Worth a visit.

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... read more

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.

Next to the innenstadt, please do not miss this. It is quick and easy to get to after you visit the park.

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)

It was cold and windy but the view is amazing. Unfortunately no information on what you are seeing or history of the tower. The restaurant has been closed for over a year. Still, if you're looking for something to do this is a cheap activity.

Even if the weather was grey, windy and cold we had a terrific view from up there. All alone, just us! Will go there again in springtime for sure.

If you have the time - worth the visit to take great photos from the top :) We had a bit of confusion whether it worked or not.. it is not very obvious during the winter months.

On a clear, blue sky day this is perfect to get a great panoramic view of Dortmund, from its housing to its city and industry, also good to get some nice shots of the city and the stadium The park surrounding the tower is lovely to walk around, however would be even better when the flowers and trees are in...

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.

Florian Tower is the place to go to get a good view of Dortmund! A great trip to add to a days diary, the tower itself is set within an expansive park with various cafe's to get a bite to eat or a drink. Some walking is involved in order to access the tower so make sure sensible foot wear... More
