Is there any tower or building i can visit to see enschede from above?
I googled it but came up empty.
The Alphatoren or Alpha Tower in Enschede is one of the tallest buildings in the eastern part of the Netherlands - the dutch stair climbing championships are held here every year (this year on Nov. 6, 2011). But I don't think it is open to visitors - it's an apartment building.
Yes, i found that one out but it's not open for public.
Thanks anyway. :)
Robin Pater does 1.5 hour 'city walks' through Enschede for 2 to 20 persons - and can tell you a lot about the history of Enschede, in dutch, english or german. He mentions the Alphatoren as part of some of his city walks, so he may be able to get access, and if not, he will know other high buildings in Enschede.
His site is only in dutch, but you can find his contact details there, and maybe use google translate? http://www.stadswandelingenschede.nl/
I suggest you contact him!
