Best place to see 360° Panoramic View of Cologne

Best place to see 360° Panoramic View of Cologne , Germany

Recently during 8-19 May 2019, I have spent my holidays with my family, traveling to 3 European countries (Germany, Netherlands and Belgium) and visiting so many interesting places – mainly city iconic sites and tourist attractions. Cologne is my first city to visit. Main attractions are Cologne Cathedral (it’s a must-see place), Chocolate Museum, Old Town, Museum Ludwig, etc.  By the way, I’m not writing this post to cover all the mentioned sites. I’m going to take you to the place that you can see panoramic view of Cologne all around with the cheapest entrance fee – just 3 euros !

Cologne Map

Most attraction sites in Cologne are located at both sides of the Rhine River with Hohenzollernbrucke in between. Cologne Central Station is on the left next to the Cologne Cathedral while Koln Triangle observation deck is on the right (as shown on the map), right next to the Koln Messe/Deutz train station.


Koln Triangle is the modern office building with observation deck on 28th Floor. Once upon arrival, just pay 3 euros to staff at the counter.


Take the elevator to 28th Floor and walk up the stairs a bit to the observation deck.


To get clear photos (without reflection from the glass), you need to hold your camera closely next to the glass before shooting.

Residential area (opposite side of the Cathedral)


Residential area is packed with houses, condominiums and buildings.

Main street leading to Lanxess Arena, 20,000-capacity indoor arena, spanned by a steel arch support, hosting sport events and concerts. (1).jpg

It was very lucky for me to go up to the observation deck and got this awesome ray of light ! Just 5 minute before disappeared.

To sum up, this place is highly recommended to visit if you have a chance to go to Cologne – with this panoramic view it’s worth to pay at all costs and you will not get disappointed.
