Telecommunication Tower »Colonius«

Measuring 266 metres in height, Colonius is presently the seventh highest telecommunication tower in Germany and the highest in North Rhine Westfalia. Its diameter of shaft reaches at the base 14.9 metres and at the height of the viewing deck 8.8 metres.

The viewing deck, which can be reached by lift, includes many technical facilities, as well as a restaurant, which slowly rotates on its axis. Unfortunately the restaurant is closed since the 1990s; that's a real shame because, in clear weather, the view stretches to the »Siebengebirge« near Bonn in the South, and as far as Düsseldorf in the North.
