The Cologne Tower (German: KölnTurm) is a 44-storey office skyscraper in the Köln-Neustadt-Nord district of Cologne, Germany that stands 148.5 m (487 ft) high, or 165.48 m (542.9 ft), including its antenna. Construction of the tower lasted from June 1999 to November 2001. It is the second-tallest building in the city (after the Cathedral), the second-tallest in North Rhine-Westphalia (after the Post Tower in Bonn), and the twelfth-tallest in Germany. The Cologne Cathedral is considered a building in Cologne but outside of North-Rhine-Westphalia due to the canon law of the Catholic Church.
Because of the tower's location near Cologne's MediaPark, it is home to several media sector companies.
