Burj Khalifa At the Top

The most iconic structure in Dubai's impressive skyline is the Burj Khalifa. It is currently the world's tallest building, standing at 828 meters. A visit to Dubai would be incomplete without a stop at the magnificent observation deck. Burj Khalifa introduced the 'At the Top Sky Experience' in 2014, with two new observation decks on levels 125 and 148, respectively. One level higher Level 125 at the Top features a spacious deck with Arabic decor and the newest attraction: Dubai - A Falcon's Eye View. It's an exceptional experience that provides guests with a stunning view of the city and prominent destinations from a unique vantage point of Burj Khalifa at the Top.

Guests can also use the green screen technology at the photo kiosks to capture picturesque moments with special effects such as the city of Dubai or the external fa├žade of the Burj Khalifa as the backdrop. These images can also be printed on a variety of products.

At 555m, the luxurious lounge and outdoor terrace at level 148 provide an enthralling view of the sky and below. While on a personalized tour with appointed Guest Ambassadors, guests can enjoy refreshing signature drinks such as juice and Arabic coffee. A life-size screen provides an enthralling interactive experience through motion senses to explore Dubai's most notable landmarks.

Entrance at Burj Khalifa

The experience at the top of Burj Khalifa is divided into several parts.

  • You may have to wait in line once you have your ticket in hand. While you wait, you can look at the interactive displays that provide more information about the skyscraper.
  • When it is time to leave, you will be led to the base of the tower. This tour also includes historical information about the building.
  • The elevator to the 124th floor, despite being one of the fastest in the world, is somewhat disappointing. It only takes a minute to get to the observation deck, but the ride is so smooth you'd never know you were moving.
  • Once at the observation deck, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Dubai skyline. There are also telescopes available for a closer look. These telescopes have a recorded view feature that shows you how the city looks during the day and at night. The average person spends one hour at the observation deck.
  • The newest immersive experience at Burj Khalifa at the Top has a twist. When you step onto a glass floor, you will feel it 'crack' beneath your feet. Enjoy this amazing experience by adding it to your At the Top Burj Khalifa tickets.
  • For those who are a little too shy to go outside, Level 124 has an indoor area that includes a gift shop. Using cameras linked to the touch screens placed throughout, you can zoom in on the ground.
  • You'll have to fight for position on the outdoor deck to press your nose against the glass and look over Dubai's downtown. Don't forget to look up to see the final 400 or so meters soaring above you for an even more dizzying experience.
