Culminating at 240m, over the Rhine river, the Rhine tower is the symbol of the city. From outside, you can see at night a digital clock running along it. Going inside, you have to opportunity to go up – with a lift – to appreciate a spectacular view over the area, the most populated in Germany. It is also possible to have an (expensive) diner, or simply enjoy a drink at the bar.

Don't hesitate to ask for an appointment and go through their tissues to make your own custom suit, for around 400€. Standard suits range from 250 to 700€.
