Salve - Willkommen ! (ER)Lebenswertes Trier! Älteste Stadt Deutschlands! 8 x Welterbe Trier – Zentrum der Antike

The City Skyliner with its 298 tons (270 metric tons) is a genuine heavyweight in the truest sense of the word. At 266 ft (81 m), the world’s tallest mobile observation tower will bring up to 60 guests daily per lift to the top between August 30 and October 6, 2019. The City Skyliner will be set up on the parking area by the "Red Tower" on Mustorstrasse not far from the Constantine Basilika and will enable residents and guests new views of Trier - all with the most modern technique and "lofty" comfort.

The ride up lasts seven minutes, the lift rising slowly and turning slightly toward the top. At the highest point it’s 236 ft/72 m, the maximum height of the lift for the City Skyliner. As a comparison: The Porta Nigra with its impressive 98.2 ft/30 m is not even half that tall. When you get to the platform at the top, you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view onto the city. In good weather, this panorama view can go for miles/kilometers.

The so-called "gyro tower" turns while moving upwards as well as down and has a fully air-conditioned cabin with barrier-free access. In addition, the City Skyliner manages this movement with a noise emission of less than 40 decibels. A bar in the waiting area provides visitors with refreshment drinks. Furthermore, the cabin is furnished with loud speakers giving information in different languages about Trier during the ride.
