The tower provides nice views over Pyongyang. Nothing more, nothing less The tower has plates from supporting associations in the world for the Juche ideals. A lift will bring you up to the top. For 5 Euro per person.

A tall tower with a great view! The tour guide also told stories explaining the symbolic features of the building bricks. The view was excellent and the small elevator fee was absolutely worth the waiting line.

This was one of my highlights on my Pyongyang tour. It only costs 5 euros to ascend to the top, and the views are amazing. The giftshop is great, and you can even get some creepy super high content alcohol with dead snakes and squid...More

Can be seen from many locations in Pyongyang and looks spectacular. The visit to the tower and trip to the top was fantastic. As with most aspects of NK and Pyongyang there is a lot of propaganda spoken about the ideology associated with the Tower...More

It doesn’t cost much at all to head up the Juche Tower and although it’s a pretty small space up there it is an ace view. I’d definitely recommend a brief trip up just to get some great pics of the city and to get...More

The Juche Tower is a symbol of the Juche idea (national self reliance, literally “Master of one’s self”) penned by Kim Il Sung. For 5 euros you can catch the lift to the top of the Tower for spectacular views over Pyongyang.

An important landmark in Pyongyang. There is a lift to the top, which affords a great view of the city. Here also hv a gallery. 一個在平壤的重要景觀地標, 有電梯可直通最頂端看平壤. 天氣好可以看很遠 ~ 景觀非常棒. 這裡也有個畫廊, 可以看當地出色的畫作.

A typical monument that you are likely to see in this strange but charming country. It is worth taking the lift to the top just to get a panoramic view and pictures of this lovely city of Pyongyang
