An inside look at the highlights of Dubai Frame

Last Updated:

The Dubai Frame stands as an iconic structure in Zabeel Park, featuring two 150-meter towers connected by a 93-meter bridge. Known also as Berwaz Dubai, this landmark was crafted to capture Dubai’s transformation from a simple fishing village to the dazzling city it is today. At its summit, visitors can witness the city’s past, present, and future in the form of three different sections inside the Dubai Frame. Holding the record for the largest frame globally, the Dubai Frame offers unmatched views: the historical district to the north and the modern skyline to the south. Adding to the excitement, a glass bridge at 492 feet allows visitors a thrilling experience of seemingly floating above the city landscape. Let’s take a closer look at what you can see inside the Dubai Frame!
