Completed in 1981, then more than 30 years ago, The Rheinturm Dusseldorf (i.e. Rhine Tower, the historic river of Germany, which “starts” with the spectacular waterfalls of Schaffhausen in Switzerland) is a monolithic tower that stands on the profile of city, which in addition to an obvious practical use for broadcasting TV, radio and more, has a playful side.
The tip of the tower is about 240 meters, while the top floor viable (at least for normal people) is only 174 meters. Not unexpectedly, the tower has a plan for observation, which offers panoramic views of Dusseldorf, 600,000 inhabitants just 40 kilometers away from the beautiful Cologne Cathedral. The Observation Deck is open daily from 10 am until 11:30 pm.Read More »The Rheinturm Dusseldorf, the largest digital clock in the world
