This page will help you learn everything you need to know before visiting Burj Khalifa - from opening hours and the best time to visit to information about prime and non-prime hours, we've got you covered!
The world’s tallest skyscraper is open every day of the week, through the year. Here are Burj Khalifa timings for At The Top and At The Top SKY. While you can spend unlimited time on Levels 124 & 125, you can stay on At The Top SKY for only 45 minutes.
Timings: The fireworks at Burj Khalifa start at midnight and last for about 20 minutes.
Where to watch:The Burj Khalifa is located at Downtown Dubai, right next to the Dubai Mall. Note that this event draws in large crowds so the area around the tower can get very busy; try to arrive at least an hour early to find the best spot.
A Dubai fountain show is held every day of the week, at different times.
Where to view:
Perhaps the best way to get a close look at the dancing fountain in Dubai is to go for a boat ride on the Burj Khalifa lake. On a traditional Abra, you will sail across the lake and view the musical performance from an excellent vantage point.
Timings: 05:45 PM to 11:30 PM
It is open throughout the year. At The Top timings for the weekdays (Sunday-Thursday) are 10 AM till midnight, with the last entry being at 11 PM, while during the weekends (Friday-Saturday) it is open from 8 AM till midnight, with the last entry being at 11 PM. At The Top SKY is open every day from 12 PM to 10 PM with 9 PM as the last entry time.
Before visiting the Burj Khalifa, make sure to check its opening hours and timings. If you’re looking for the best view, sunset time, between 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM would be the best option. However, if you’re looking to visit with the least crowds, early mornings around 10:00 AM and evenings before closing, are the best time to visit Burj Khalifa.
You can spend 30-45 minutes at Level 148 as it is a timed visit. However, on Levels 124 & 125, you can spend as much time as you would like. We recommend setting aside about 2-3 hours for a complete visit.

Burj Khalifa at night is a great time to visit. You get fewer crowds and a splendid, bright-light-filled view of Dubai’s skyline.
Since a Burj Khalifa sunset falls under prime visiting hours, tickets are priced higher than if you book any other slot throughout the day. However, the mesmerizing sunset and view from the tower make the experience worth your money.
The Burj Khalifa prime hours for At The Top are 4 PM - 6 PM and for At The Top SKY are 9:30 AM - 6 PM.
