Düsseldorf Rhine Tower

Düsseldorf Rhine Tower


Highest building in Düsseldorf

At 500 metres higher than the Eiffel Tower, the Düsseldorf Rhine Tower was originally supposed to be built. These plans to build a “marvel of German iron industry” date back to the time before the First World War and were quickly discarded. At 240.5 metres, today’s TV tower is currently Düsseldorf’s tallest building, which has a significant impact on the city’s skyline. A special feature on the tower is the so-called light sculpture, which is considered the largest digital clock in the world. The Rhine Tower is open to visitors and very popular with tourists – around 30,000 excursionists are counted here every year. Another highlight are the peregrine falcons that have been nesting in the tower since 2000.
