Calgary Tower – Calgary, Alberta, Canada

A must-see attraction in Calgary, it gives an amazing, birds-eye view of the city all the way to the mountains on the west side.

The Calgary Tower is a 626 feet tall observation tower in Downtown Calgary, Canada. The tower was renamed to Calgary Tower in 1971, from its original name ( Husky Tower). It opened to the public on June 30, 1968 and is the tallest building in Calgary.

The tower also features a carillon ( a musical instrument consisting of 23 cup-shaped bronze bells, which are played serially to produce a melody  – It is typically housed in the bell tower of a church ). This was presented to the city by the local Dutch community in 1975 as part of the city’s centennial celebrations.
