Calgary Tower, Calgary

3.7
#2 of 47 in Sightseeing in Calgary
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Take in the epic sprawl of the city from the lofty vantage point of Calgary Tower, a 191 m (626 ft) spire with a viewing platform perched on top. Enjoy fine dining in the tower’s admittedly pricey revolving restaurant, or head straight for the observation deck to step on the glass floor and enjoy sweeping views of the city. Consider getting up to the top on a clear afternoon to witness a stunning sunset.

  • Walking up to the Tower it looks monstrous rising up from the ground amongst the other buildings, a very tall column with a platform on the top. The views of Calgary from the top are excellent but the...  more »
  • Eating in the sky restaurant will save you the entrance. For me eating a the restaurant is a good deal as it get you a free entrance plus it's quieter and you get the 360 view while eating.Went there ...  more »
  • great view, not too buy when we went, but we made sure we went right on opening for the day. Self tour is a great little feature, and talks about all the important landmarks history of Calgary.  more »

  • Superb views amazing photos. Hope they can enlarge this incredible place and the beautiful city of Calgary. Such an incredible place that can go to the most amazing smart city in North America. It captured my imagination the minute I saw it. Love it
  • Here from L.A. for a week. Spent an hour in the observation tower - well worth it for us. Sunday had delicious prime rib dinner at tower. For USians with strong US dollar, cocktails and big prime rib dinner with view an excellent value(elevator to observation $18.00 is free). Waiter (from Hungary) was super friendly and helpful. YMMV.
  • Admission is $18 for an adult. Has a o.k gift store on main floor, and one in the tower it's self. Little store is outrageously priced so bring your own water. Very little to read on the observation deck, go for the audio tour. Great views from the observation deck.
  • This review is for the Calgary Tower experience and not Sky 360, the revolving restaurant at the top of the tower. Adult admission is $18 CAD. It is nice to come during the evening or near to closing time as there aren't many people. There is only a small portion of the tower which you can actually look down at the view below. You would probably only spend about 15 minutes up there unless you're listening to the audio guide. If you have never been in a tower before with the ability to view down, this might be worth it. Otherwise, I would probably save my money and pass on it.
  • A great place to go to enjoy the scenery but recently I have found the prices for the restaurant a bit to high which has been putting me off from going there.
