Florian Tower (Florianturm), Dortmund

Enjoy a bird's-eye view of Dortmund from the observation deck of Florian Tower (Florianturm). Named after Saint Florian, the patron saint of gardeners, this TV tower was built in 1959 and was temporarily the tallest structure in Germany. At 219.6 m (720 ft) high, the tower offers 360-degree views over Westfalen Park and the entire city. Just below the observation decks, you can watch the sunset as you dine in the revolving restaurant. On the top observation floor, check out the installation and antennas for Deutsche Telekom, which has been transmitting television signals since the tower's inauguration.

  • The view of the city of Dortmund is stunning, and the viewing platform with 2 interesting small adjacent floors. The downside is that to access the Florian Tower which is supposedly priced at "2.50" you finally have to pay 3.50 more to access the Westfalenpark which is all around the Florian Tower.

  • The tower has a nice observation deck with great views. However Dortmund doesn't really have many sights or landmarks.  more »
