City administration prohibits buildings with a height exceeding 99 m in the city, and as a result, no buildings may be built in the city over the aforementioned height. The south tower, which is normally open to those wishing to climb the stairs, will offer a unique view of Munich and the nearby Alps after its current renovation is completed. Both the towers are approximately 99 meters in height.
