Buildings

Burj Khalifa

With its slim silhouette, it becomes a focal point in the cityscape; it is particularly impressive at night when it glows brightly from afar. The Burj Khalifa is a place of superlatives. It has 163 usable floors and the world's highest restaurant. In addition, it has the highest roof and is the world's tallest building, which is used for housing. The ‘At the Top’ observation deck is the second highest in the world. Enjoy a unique view of the city from a dizzying height. The view of Palm Island is particularly impressive. On a clear day the view extends far beyond the Emirate of Dubai. The individual floors are accessible by 57 lifts and 8 escalators.
Alongside apartments, Burj Khalifa is home to offices and wellness / fitness areas, as well as the world's first Armani Hotel. In the At.mosphere restaurant you dine on the 122nd floor of the building. The Burj Khalifa's two cashpoints, at which you can withdraw gold bars of up to one ounce, are also exceptional.
The impressive building is surrounded by a superb 11 hectare park. Dubai Fountain is the largest fountain in the world. Over a 250-metre stretch in the Burj Khalifa Lake, the fountain makes up to 1,000 different water patterns.
