Florian Tower (Florianturm), Dortmund

3.7
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.

    In Dortmund rarely rode for attractions. It is a city for the fans and for those traveling to other cities. Florianturm is unequivocally the most stiff mast SI place in Dortmund. I advise you to take the time for the observation tower-the pleasure to pay for itself.
