Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa is currently the tallest skyscraper in the world, which you can visit in the United Arab Emirates, specifically directly in Dubai. Its construction took six years, between 2004 and 2010. The building was opened on January 4, 2010.

The highest point of the building is at a height of 829.8 meters, which is difficult to imagine in normal development. Burj Khalifa is simply a must see and visit. The building has a variety of uses in many fields, which is completely understandable given its size and built-up area. The entire 37 floors are occupied by the Armani Hotel, and the other 63 floors are occupied by very luxurious apartments. Of course, there are also technological spaces and, last but not least, offices.
