View the city from Burj Khalifa

What
Burj Khalifa currently stands as the tallest building in the world. Inaugurated in 2010, it towers at 828 metres (2,716.5 feet), dominates the Dubai skyline. It was originally named Burj Dubai before its completion but was later renamed to honor UAE President, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

This architectural wonder has broken so many world records including tallest building, tallest free-standing structure, tallest elevator installation, and building with most floors.

The Burj Khalifa has 163 floors and houses corporate offices, residential suites, the Armani Hotel, the Armani residences, and observation decks.

Why
There is no better way to get to know the city and enjoy a panoramic view of Dubai than from the world’s highest observation deck, namely At The Top Burj Khalifa Sky.

From the reception area, move along the travelator while watching the multi-media display about Dubai’s history and the building’s construction. From there, step into the world’s fastest elevator and travel 10 metres per second to the observation decks.

Start your experience at Level 124 and marvel at the unobstructed 360-degree view of Dubai, the Arabian Gulf, and the surrounding desert.

Take the spiral flight to Level 125 and check out the Falcon’s Eye View of Dubai.

Finally, move further up to Burj Khalifa’s crowning glory, the observation deck at Level 148 that sits at 555 metres above the ground. Viewing the city from this height is like looking at a live miniature model of Dubai!

Dine from the top
Complete your experience and dine at the world’s highest restaurant, At.Mosphere, located at Level 122 of the Burj Khalifa.
