The early bird catches the stunning sunrise! From Friday, the world’s tallest tower is open to visitors from the break of dawn.

Observation decks at the Burj Khalifa are welcoming visitors from 5.30am every Friday and Saturday during winter.

From an altitude of 465-metres, see Dubai wake up from the unbeatable vantage point of At the Top, on Levels 124 and 125. While you’re up there, stroll the outdoor terrace on 124 for breathtaking views of the city. On the 125th floor, you’ll find telescopes and a tribute to Arabic culture, where visitors can explore the city virtually through the ‘Dubai – A Falcon’s Eye View.’

As well as magical views of the emirate, tickets to the sunrise sessions include a light breakfast at The Café, on comforting normality of the Burj Khalifa’s ground floor.

Adult tickets are AED 135 per person, with children AED 100 each. Buy them from the starting point of the At the Top, Burj Khalifa journey on the lower ground floor of The Dubai Mall or at
