get your tickets online to avoid extra waiting at the entrance; make sure you have no fear in elevators that 'lift you up' upto 170 meters high in just one minute; but the 360° view in the Rheinturm is worth it all ... !!!

Heute leider etwas trüb, aber trotzdem schön. Der Ausblick zahlt sich in jedem Fall aus. :)

All I can say is wow, such a great experience to see all of the city from one spot

The cocktails were a little expensive. However, a wonderful view and worth it!

it's a nice trip down the river and the Eiskaffee tastes so good.
