  • Viewed unfortunately not from the inside. Was already. Need to go again. But the monument is interesting and the Park around it is also very nice.

  • Imposing building, renovated, however far too expensive nice and generous. The ascent is not for people with Claustrophobie, fear of heights, or poor endurance, although there is also an elevator. Unfortunately poor, confusing signs.

  • A gigantic panoramic is the reward for very many levels, you must climb, if you want to get v not in the elevator. Absolutely recommended!

  • The food taste was alright but not perfect, never mind Yes but right now, but unfortunately a part of my order was only lukewarm. The drinks are stretched ugly erweise with water. The staff is frantic and inexpert that feel better. Tables will be cleared only when the next guest is already waiting. Everything goes in right but much better here, a more reasonable price saves the overall picture.

  • The food was OK, ...das staff very unfriendly. On a warm Sunday afternoon, it was not possible to prepare a further table in the open air for us. When we we still we were not served simply. Only when we platznahmen with other people at the table a meal was served us hesitant. Unfortunate, because the situation in sight to the monument is really very nice.

  • The food was ok, but the staff is very unfriendly and bad mood Sunday no proper welcome when ordering designs they were very annoyed as MMH ...jetzt who want to still regard were not at all with 10 people there and we all of us have felt not truly at home! So anyone looking for a friendly atmosphere is wrong there. And blaspheming on the counter makes it not too besser😉
