Burj Khalifa
As everybody knows, Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world today with its 820 meters height. The tower is the symbol of Dubai and all United Arab Emirate as the tallest free-standing structure. Initially announced as Burj Dubai, the construction of the tower was inaugurated in 2004 and it was opened 6 years later, in 2010, under the name Burj Khalifa with its 163 floors inside. Apart from being world's tallest building, it has also the longest travel distance elevators in the world

Located in downtown of the city and just a minute away from Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa is one of the most visited and must-see places in Dubai. On its 163 floors are located offices, apartments and worldwide famous Armani Hotel.

Dubai metro is fastest and most convenient type of transport in the city, thus metro station Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa (Number 25) of red line will be perfect place to start your journey. After metro, just take air-conditioned corridor to Dubai Mall (around 10 minutes walk) where you need to go to ground floor to the main entrance of Burj Khalifa.

All visitors, who would like to visit the world's tallest building should buy ticket online or at ticket counter at the main entrance. We recommend you to buy your ticket online, as you will save up to 25% and will have opportunity to choose most convenient date and time of visit. Due to high interest from tourists to visit the observation deck of Burj Khalifa named "At The Top", there are plenty of moments that all tickets are sold out for couple of upcoming days and ticket counters by main entrance of Burj Khalifa are closed. Buying your ticket online will give you discount as well as confirmed ticket in any available time and date for you.

Entrance ticket
If you would like to visit "At The Top" of Burj Khalifa from 08:30AM- 15:30AM and from 18:30PM until closing, price of the ticket will be AED 125 net per person, and AED 95 per child for age from 4 until 12 years old. In case you prefer visiting the observation deck between 16:00PM and 18:00PM, the price of the ticket will be AED 200 net per person, and AED 160 per child for age from 4 until 12 years old.

If you would like to experience having some tea or coffee with pastries on a great altitude- it will be possible to realize it as well. Although "At The Top" is located in 124th floor, visitors who choose option with refreshments during the online booking, will have access to Burj Khalifa SKY on 148th floor (555 meters). Guests of  Burj Khalifa SKY can stay at level 148 for up to 30 minutes before continuing their journey to level 125 (452 meters), where they can stay as long as they prefer. The average time that you would spend to enjoy "At the Top" is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Better to come 30 minutes before your confirmed time in the ticket due to security and ticket checks which can be, at times, very long. Visitors to 124th floor who wish to view the sunset can book ticket as well online.

After passing security and ticket check, you will see different videos, pictures and other information showing how tower was built and how Dubai was before and now.
