Rheinturm

From any angle, the 767-foot-high tower dominates Düsseldorf's skyline. It was opened in 1982 as a radio and television tower. The towering concrete landmark is also useful for tourism purposes. As a publicly accessible observation point, it attracts numerous visitors every day in the Rheinpark along the river.

The high-speed elevator speeds up to the glass-fronted restaurant about 557 feet high (once an hour it does a full rotation around the axis) or to the public observation deck with an attached cafeteria one level down. The tilted picture windows provide quite a dizzying rush. If you lean forward, the ground appears between your own feet. The rest of view is overwhelming: All Düsseldorf is spread out in front of you -- the modern buildings of the Zollhof and the "Medienhafen" (media harbor) seem like a pile of Lego blocks. The view roams across the city limits and follows the course of the Rhine into neighboring Duisburg and into the depths of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Even from outside, the Rhine Tower offers an attraction. The light installation on its north side (facing the old town) shows the time in the form of scales as a "light time level" -- it is the largest decimal clock in the world.
