Offering panoramic views across Baltimore's Inner Harbour, downtown areas and beyond, Baltimore's World Trade Center is the place to go for visitors to "Charm City".
The World Trade Centre in Baltimore is the world's tallest pentagonal-shaped building where, on the 27th floor, you will find the city's observation deck, called Top of the World. A visit to this observation deck will give you a good sense of the city.
The observation deck also contains an exhibit about Baltimore as well as a gift shop where you can buy various souvenirs - the Maryland crab features on many of these.
Admission is reasonably priced and disabled access is available.
The World Trade Center Baltimore is the tallest building on the Inner Harbor. At over 422 feet tall, it towers the Inner Harbor skyline. At its highest level is an observation deck, which also houses the 9/11 memorial. My family went up the building out of curiosity. We did not know of the memorial at the time when we decided we could see a great view of Baltimore from up there. I wrote a review on the observation deck.
The World Trade Center's observation deck - Top of the World - offers great views of the Inner Harbor and beyond, including Shot Tower (picture 2) and Federal Hill (picture 3). The views are made more interesting by exhibits depicting snippets from Baltimore's history.
The World Trade Center building itself, one of the centerpiece buildings in the redevelopment of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, holds the record as the world's tallest pentagonal building.
Entrance tickets cost US$ 5 per adult.
At 27 stories, 423 feet, this is the tallest pentagonal-shaped building in the world. The "Top of the World" is an observation deck offering a splendid view of the entire city. It's an excellent starting point for touring the Inner Harbor.
From here, one has excellent views of the harbor, Federal Hill, the USS Constellation, the National Aquarium, and Science Center, Harborplace, and all other attractions along the Inner Harbor.
We didn't actually go in the World Trade Center, but we walked around it. The World Trade Center is the most dominating building on the Inner Harbor. You can enter the center and view Baltimore from it's Top of the World Observation Deck on the 27th floor (we didn't) for a fee. Or you can just view it across the blue waters of the harbor.
Most people don't realize it, but Baltimore has its own tall building called the World Trade Center. It's located right on the water at the Inner Harbor, and may be the tallest building in the city. But, regardless of the accuracy of that fact, it does have an observation deck and it's worth an elevator ride to the top ($5 a person). We went up for the first time in October 2005 on the occassion of my parents visiting from Florida, and the view was spectacular.
A good way to view the entire Inner Harbor is to go to the observation deck of the Baltimore Trade Center building. You can see the entire Inner Harbor area and have good views of the city. The view is worth a few minutes.
The 27th floor of the world trade center has an observation deck over Baltimore Harbor and the downtown area. It's a great place for a picture of the skyline.
You can go to the top floor of this building for a wonderful view of Baltimore on all sides!! (See the Travelogue)
This is the tallest Pentagon building in the world!!!
Visit "Top of the World" to get a great view (and pictures like this one) of the city.
