    Lovely sunset over the Rhine
    We went midevening so we could watch the sunset which was amazing. There are great views all round. You buy a ticket to go up. There is a counter selling drinks and snacks but no pressure to buy anything. The description calls it a cocktail bar but it felt much more relaxed than that ( they do sell cocktails but they are pricey!) Well worth a visit
    Liebe/r Lizzie44186394, vielen herzlichen Dank für Ihre positive Bewertung und den damit verbundenen Besuch. Wir freuen uns, dass Sie eine fantastische Zeit hatten und freuen uns auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen über den Dächern der Stadt. Wir senden sonnige Grüße aus Düsseldorf, liebe Grüße das Rheinturm Team.

    View from the top
    First of all if you're planning a trip to Dusseldorf I'd highly recommend getting the Dusseldorf Card, you can buy it from the website and it's pretty inexpensive. You get a discounted entry to the tower and loads of other things including public transport. As you might imagine the view from the top of the tower is worth the trip with a bar and restaurant. Probably one of the main visits to make while in the city, and hard to miss it!

    Great views
    Really enjoyed visit. Went early in morning and got there for 10am when opened so got discount ticket price and bit less busy so recommend that. Cafe very nice, got myself a coffee and others there I saw got cakes that looked very nice. Note there is a minimum spend for card payments so take cash if like me it was just a coffee. Great experience to see the whole city.

    Its probably one of the main “must see/must do” activities in the City. Cost c.€12 each and then there is a lift which carries you to the viewing tower at 168mtrs. We visited on a quiet but fairly overcast day so we couldnt see as far as Köln however views were impressive even if I got a bit dizzy at times. There is a bar cafe on the viewing floor which offers a good range of drinks and snacks so naturally we stopped for a few mins rest. Only “complaint” was the wait for a lift back down the tower - took a while despite there being no crowd!

    Brilliant 360° view
    Brilliant! Elevator takes you all the way up in just one minute. Large windows give you an excellent view of the city and the crazy meandering river. There's a bar and toilets. I was there in the morning (early bird fee). Not too many people.

We booked in advance for a fixed time, two adults, two children, we arrived and were met by a queue, it was raining! We were lucky that we could stand within the doorway, but many others were not. Many people/decided to leave rather than stand in the rain. No explanation, no instructions, printed or otherwise, you simply stand in front of a barrier at the inner door.

At the time alloted, a man appeared with his mask under his nose and moved the barrier and let just one family group in, this meant the rest of us who had booked were left waiting.

A full twenty minutes after our alloted time and after the first group had entered, he returned and allowed the rest of us plebs to enter, however insisted that we all huddle together whilst he went outside for a breath of fresh air for five minutes. Eventually we were allowed to scan the barcodes (for tickets we had actually paid money for) and approach the lifts.

The first thing I noticed was the vast number of large benches where we could have all sat socially distanced with our masks on. Outside of the rain. Unfortunately whomever owns this place decided that time means nothing and proles standing in the rain isn't their concern.

Eventually we were greeted by a cheerful and friendly man who kindly escorted us and others all in the same lift up. I should say he spoke German only, but that is not a problem for us (as I work here and am fluent) nor will it be problem for you because he will still take you upstairs and is excellent as motioning to you when it is time.

Once we arrived we enjoyed the visit, we gazed upon the Alstadt, the Airport, the Cathedral, the boats as they navigated their way along the Rhine, the words someone had etched into the sand across the riverbank. The staff at the observation deck were very friendly and provided a good experience serving drinks and Nachos. The views are fantastic, especially as it hit sunset and a rainbow just managed to break it's way through the clouds.

I accept that this review may sound somewhat passive aggressive, I can only explain by asking, given they limit the number of visitors per hour, why is it not possible to simply allow us to scan our QR codes and enter the premises? We know the rules to sit apart from other groups not within our households, let us sit inside and wait instead of leaving us getting further frustrated outside in the rain? If it was summer time I would be delighted to join the back of the queue and bask in sunshine. It is, however, autumn and the preference is to stay under cover of rain.

I hope the management will read this, realise and change their policies, on the whole this is a great place to visit in Dusseldorf and we will be back again.

This is the highest tower in Dusseldorf. The Rheinturm, Rhine Tower, is almost 800 feet tall. There is an observation deck which you pay for separately because it is a long elevator ride. It also has a restaurant on the top. I would encourage you to make a reservation at the restaurant. If you do, your elevator ride is free to the restaurant. It’s just not free to the observation deck.
The Rhine Tower started construction in 1979 and was completed in 1982. The views from the tower are splendid. I would suggest you pick a clear day to maximize your photo opportunities. The restaurant is above the observation deck and it rotates completely around every 72 minutes.

The price to go to the top is 9 euros, a bit overpriced. The prices on the bar on the top are a bit above average, but still much less than I expected. I just went there and bought the ticket in the ticket booth and then I was on the top of the tower in a few minutes.
Now the most important part: the view is amazing!!! I was particularly impressed by the Rhine and its wides curves, which are not noticeable from the ground. I was there in the afternoon of a nice day, I guess that at dusk and during the evening the view would be somewhat difference. I can’t express how beautiful it is, but I can say that you can’t leave Düsseldorf without paying a visit on top of the Rheinturm!

One of the highlights and most outstanding buildings in Düsseldorf. A visit can’t be missed if you want to enjoy a beautiful 360 degrees view over the city, the river and the surroundings. If you go really early or really late it is 5 euro per ticket otherwise you pay 9 euro to go up (as adult). The elevator brings you to 168 meter in no time. As said, the views are amazing also thanks to the huge amount of glass. There is a bar and enough places to sit and enjoy the views. Prices are not too expensive. On the floor above there is even a sushi restaurant but that is very expensive though.

The view is very nice at night, it is very colourful because of the city lights. But except this everythung else should be improved. At the cafeteria are needed more employees to speed up the process. Can be open a small souvenir shop upstairs. And the souvenir window from downstairs needs to be moved at the exit not at the entrance because nobody will pay attention at it but will want to look at it before exit. Also need to be improved, too little souvenirs for a place like this!

Definitely not value for money. 10euro per adult is a lot of money to essentially be taken up an elevator to an over priced cafe.
Was hoping to find more information about the city and what you’re looking out at.

The view is nice but nothing special.
If it was 5euro each it would still be stretching value for money but better than the current 10euro.

Also beware it is cash only and currently you need a face mask for the elevator otherwise they charge you 1euro for one.

Parking is 2€ per hour. Adult ticket was 9€ per person. We went the observatory. Drink selection wasn't great. We ordered a cola and bitter lemon soda. Both were extremely small for around 4€ each I thought was a little steep.
The view is good but the odd lighting reflects off the glass making it awkward to see anything clearly or take good photos. Its a good place to go with visitors who are visiting Dusseldorf. But for nearly 30€ for everything including parking disnt really feel like it was justified

Можно подняться на телебашню посмотреть на город и зайти в кафе. Главное, чтоб была хорошая погода, осенью когда моросит дождь и туман виды не особенно впечатляют. Думаю телевышку Вы найдете без проблем. Вход платный, подъем на скоростном лифте.
You can go up to the TV tower to see the city and go to a cafe. The main thing is that the weather is good, in the fall when it drizzles and fogs, the views are not particularly impressive. I think you will find a TV tower without any problems. The entrance is not free, the upgrade on the Express Elevator.

Great Tower with an awesome panoramic view over Düsseldorf.
Restaurant on the Top could be better (very little choices) - if you want the fine dinning one floor below (opens at 6pm) - you must reserve.
We certainly will come back and try that.
