Take the elevator up to the top of KolnTriangle, a 103 m (339 ft) tall skyscraper. From the observation deck, look over Cologne, with particularly good views of the city's old town. Pose for a photo with the cathedral in the background. Once you've finished appreciating the vista, head to the building's Mongolian barbeque restaurant, Mongo's, for a bite to eat.

  • Admittedly, we had a bit of a hard time to find the place, as it is a building giving way into an inner courtyard... in which you cannot enter through said courtyard and entrance to the Observation...

  • Come here to get your bearings and enjoy a good view of the city. It would be awesome if they had augmented reality for identifying what you're looking at - doable these days - but they don't so you're stuck with mildly cryptic glazing patterns on the glass.
  • While it was really nice, I would say I recommend better the tower of the cathedral, as you can also see most of Köln from there while you enjoy the climb of the tower and what's inside. Still, the views are awesome and if you're there for photos or for a beautiful sunset, it's the place for you
