It was a little tricky to learn when this was open, but I'm glad we preservered. We took the stairs up, and there were ok displays along the way. The terrace is where you see it all, awesome!

I would recommend the visit here. You need to ring a doorbell to enter and then ascend 109 steps to lift lobby. Some more active people (like me) will skip the small lift and do the extra 400 steps to the top! Good views, fairly...More
