The Olympiaturn (Olympic Tower) is located in the Olympiapark. It's 291m tall and offers a great view over the city.

While you are there, you should definitely walk around in the Olympiapark as well and enjoy the nice architecture from the 1972 Olympics.

The buildings are fantastic from bird eye view.
