Located 191 metres above the downtown core, the Calgary Tower offers the best view in the city and is a must-see on any visitor's itinerary. On the Observation Deck you'll experience a spectacular 360° view of the bustling city, the majestic Rocky Mountains, the foothills, and the prairies.

Tourists must see

Okay, it's not the tallest building anymore, but it's still a great view of downtown and the top rotates which is really neat.

Great for Locals and Tourists alike

I've lived in Calgary for 27 years and know so many people my age that haven't even eaten at the Calgary Tower! It's a rotating restaurant in Calgary's landmark building, they serve very good food in a nice fine dining atmosphere where they really cater to the customer. Great Alberta beef and food variety, friendly wait staff, an observation deck, and oh, did I forget to mention that the restaurant rotates around as you eat!

Reaching 762 steps or 191m (626 ft.) into the sky, this enduringly touristy landmark was once far and away the tallest structure in the city. Dwarfed now by the ever-climbing office towers of this bustling oil-driven metropolis, this tower still offers brilliant views from its observation terrace, from which you can take in the city, the mountains, and prairies beyond. The elevator whisks you... more

Went there a couple of years ago and loved it. I heard Calgary is a developing place, well the whole province. They have a lot of development going on and their airport may be largest. After development the view from the tower will be more fantastic. Currently the restaurant is good and since it moved around at a slow speed, it's a great view to see while eating. There wasn't a rush either... more

As others have mentioned, it's a little pricey, but the view from top is incredible. You'll feel your stomach tighten as you walk onto the glass floor and peer 525 feet down to the street. Their digital audio tour is entertaining and informative. You walk around the Calgary Tower at your own pace and click on highlighted buildings to learn fun factoids and hear stories of the past. It's also a... more

Too far from the Rockies to see anything of significance
and Calgary's downtown is not the most impressive.

I did it because I had an hour or two to kill.

Pretty underwhelming.

I then found you get free admission to the tower if you eat at the restaurant, though it's not advertised anywhere.
I wanted to eat at the restaurant that revolves (their menu looked good),
but you have to book it in... more

Although some of downtown Calgary's office towers are actually taller, the Calgary Tower remains the city's most distinctive landmark. Officially opened in 1968, it remains a popular visitor attraction, providing a panoramic view of the mountains to the west and the surrounding foothills and prairie. On the observation deck there are binoculars, multimedia information kiosks and the thrilling... more
