The views and the stories of the city are wonderful. You can spend 1-2 hours in this place. You will have a look at the city with many interesting top views.

I regularly visit Calgary and the Calgary tower will have pride lights and other supportive coloured lights. My heart melted when the tower had Broncos colours after the Junior hockey team was involved in a terrible accident. The tower has beautiful scenery at night and...More

The views were impressive but the accompanying audio tour made this an excellent experience. The audio provided an insight to local buildings, events and history with a touch of humour. Highly recommend this attraction.

I have only been up the tower once on a really clear day so I had what i though was a great view. If you plan to go, try and plan it for a nice weather day. The glass floor is s nice added extra.

Pretty pricey at $18 to ride the elevator, but for a one-time experience if you’re visiting Calgary, it’s worth the view.

Beautiful views of Calgary downtown covered in snow from on top of the tower, you will also enjoy the revolving Resturant on the top. I went in spring but it was still snowing in Calgary so I was very lucky to see that.

The iconic Calgary Tower, created in a single continuous pouring of concrete in 1968 is as much part of the city's brand as the Calgary Stampede. The Sky 360 Restaurant atop the tower is not as rich in ambience as it once was, but its...More

The closest parking to us is the Palliser parkade, which is attached to our building complex. Entrance to the parkade is off 10th avenue.
