St. Louis Gateway Arch

Updated: May 16, 2020


The gateway arch is the tallest human-made monument in the USA: 630 feet (190 meters), equals to 63 stories.



You can reach the top of the arc by a cable tram – there are several little tram-cars, that can host five persons each. We crowded in this claustrophobic car, watching it rise to the top of the arch. It takes 4 minutes to reach the top, and only 3 minutes to get back to the ground.

On the top of the arc, there are wide and short windows, enabling a great view of the city and the Mississippi River.


Down at the ground, there is a new free museum, with displays about the planning and construction of the arch, as well as the history of Saint Louis and the expeditions of the west.


It is a Must-Visit place in St, Louis, as it's almost the only unique attraction around.

The entrance is right next to the Old Courthouse.
