Exclusive Video: Cologne Uni Center – Look Down on Köln!

It’s one of the tallest buildings (133 metres) in Europe that’s only, or mainly, used by people to live there. Just a few shops and businesses are located in the lowest of the 38 storeys. Cologne Uni Center. Together with the world famous Cologne Cathedral (156 metres) and the television tower (266 metres) it draws a virtual triangle on the town’s map.

The transatlantic diablog had the rare opportunity to enter the viewing platform – an amazing overview included. Because, what may be quite usual for American cities is a bit more special in Europe. Buildings of that size. Also special is the combination of smaller flats for students and large flats, up to 160 squaremetres.

Check out our exclusive video, shot on the day of the building’s 40th birthday.
