The Rhine Tower is a popular attraction of Düsseldorf. The "television tower" wasn't one until 2004: Only since the installation of the DVB-T antenna has it been broadcasting TV. The communications tower was built in 1979 and is open to the public. Two elevators transport visitors at a speed of 4 meters per second (13 feet per second). The observation deck with cafeteria at an altitude of 170 meters offers an impressive view over the city and outskirts of Düsseldorf. The windows go all the way to the floor and are tilted such that it is possible to look straight down at the base of the tower. There are two more floors which are open to the public: One level below the cafeteria, there is an open deck.
