Essentially a viewing platform across the river from the city center just at the end of the Hohenzollern bridge. An overview look at the city. Many of the landmarks like the Koelnmesse (an important WWII site for detentions and deportations) become more apparent, especially after a visit to the NS Documentation Center.

You get a 360degree view from the 29th floor for the cost of a few Euros. I would suggest that you walk around the Old Town before you go to the Koln Triangle, as it makes it more interesting to see the same places from a vantage point.

I had heard about Cologne Triangle on Tripadvisor and so headed for a lovely walk over, arriving about 5pm. Which seemed like a great time to see the sun setting and the light changing over Cologne.
It was as to find once you walk over the bridge, just keep following the path and there is a sign. You pay €5 and get a ticket to scan to let you through. It is sign posted all the way to the lifts and to the observation deck. It was a Friday evening when I went and so wasn't too busy up there on the 28 floor plus a few more steps!
The views are amazing and you get a total 360 view of Old Cologne with the Dom and the newer and more industrial side. All along the glass walls are drawings telling you what buildings you are looking at. I spent a good hour up there. A must do in Cologne.

It's a short walk over the river from Cologne station to the Triangle viewing point. For a few Euros you can take the lift up to the top from where you can get excellent views of the city and surrounding countryside.

Located on the opposite side of the river from the Cathedral you can walk across the river via main railway bridge which has a pedestrian and cycle path. Ahead of you is a tall round tower. Follow the obvious path and you’ll arrive at the foot of the tower. There is a large sign outside saying ‘ Cologne View’. Go inside and pay 5euro per adult. You then take the lift to the outside viewing platform. Tall glass panels surround the edge. The views of Cologne are amazing and you can walk all the way around to see different vistas of the city.
It’s definitely worth going to.

A better unrestricted view than from the tower of the cathedral, and you don't climb 533 steep steps. The view is beautiful, 360 degrees and each attraction is noted.

This place is fully open. My wife and I loved it. Great views. The only drawback is that there is some glare off the glass when you are trying to take photos. Reasonably priced.

The "about" section lists the triangle as temporarily closed. We visited on December 22 and it was open to the public. This is definitely worth the trip across the river to visit. You get some great views of the Cathedral and the Hohenzollern bridge as well as up and down the river. Getting here is easy. We took the red bus tour and got off at the nearby stop and then walked back across the bridge to the cathedral. It's maybe a 15-20 minute walk. Prices are reasonable so add the triangle to your list of things to do in Cologne.
