Calgary Tower, Calgary

3.9
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. Make Calgary Tower a part of your Calgary vacation plans using our Calgary trip planner.

  • Best experience of a 360 degree tour of the city. When you make lunch reservations at sky 360 cafe the entrance is free. Our family from California met friends from Melbourne and we spent over 2 hours in the cafe took tons of photos. Remember the DSLR which captures everything far. The staff are friendly and efficient the service charge is included so we were wondering whether to tip or not. Finally, we did!!!😄
  • It was nice to be there..we could have a good view of the entire Calgary city from the top. It was quite a scary to watch down from the top of the tower. At first I thought I had use the stairwells to reach the top of tower but there was an elevator which made way easy for our family. But we noticed , there were few other towers which were taller than this tower which obstructed the view in one side others all ok
  • I like to come here usually when I have friends visiting from other cities. They all love it. You just pay $18 to enter. But finding the parking is a pain. well, I mean it’s in the heart of downtown so. If you come to Calgary, check this place out and make sure to bring your camera!
  • We tried to get into the Rimrock Dining Room for a Sunday supper with friends but it was closed. Business must really be slow for this classy but rather old facility. The lounge was acceptable but not busy at all. Prices were still high. We won't be returning any time soon.
  • Can't explain the experience that I felt here. Although u had been to CN Tower in day time. We visited Calgary tower in evening time. It has very scenic views. It is 191 meters above the downtown. They have education based field trip for kids, which is recommended if you are in Calgary. The audio device was free to use. Had great fun listening to history and panorama views.
