Floor 601 has a portal connected to Floor 599.

It is a sky-lobby with elevator shafts connecting it to the floors above.

Floor 602 is a silly lobby. All seats are equipped with a whoopee cushion, there are paint buckets balancing on doors and there is a significant fraction of N2O in the air.

Floor 604 contains an old man with a broom, hitting the ceiling and telling floor 605 to "SHUT THE HELL UP".

Floor 611 is a designated Safe Zone for all the space invaders, arcadians, cylons, turtle thingies, monks, rats, bats, triplane pilots, giant ants and other low-level swarm enemies that have rejected their anonymous and early deaths, cast aside the minless aggression expected of them, fled their home video games and sought out somewhere to enjoy a range of teas, savoury breads and healthy snacks while listening to their choice of over 500 music channels.

Floor 613 is mostly a Kabbalah meeting place of some sort (613 commandments), but it has corners set aside for a small shrine to Red Holzman (613 wins) and the lyrics of Beatles songs (613 mentions of the word "love"). There's also some guy talking about sexy primes but we try to ignore him. Some kinda weird, obsessive fan of Anne McCaffrey's Tower and Hive series or something, maybe.

Floor 628 is presumed to be at 1884 metres, the same altitude as Madrisa Land, where the website claims:
In addition to legends and myths, kids can milk goats and feed and stroke animals in the animal park here. And a giant 70-meter slide, Öpfelsee lakeside Kneipp facility, archery-parcours, accommodation in tree hotel and thrilling valley descents with scooters add to healthy adventure here.


Note that that's "parcours" not "parkour" there. It's an archery range, not "archery while leaping, vaulting, sliding, rolling and tumbling around rooftops." That wouldn't be healthy adventure.

Floor 637 is offset sideways, so the only thing beneath it for over a mile is air and an occasional stray pigeon. On the opposite side of the tower is a counterweight to maintain balance. The counterweight contains only itself, which is a pretty good mindspace for something meant to maintain balance.
The stairs bypassing floor 637 have been described as "draughty."
