With some 1.2 million visitors each year, the TV tower is an icon of Berlin and the tallest building in the city. It was built in the 1960s by the German Democratic Government to demonstrate the strength and efficiency of the socialist party system. Today, the tower shapes the skyline of Berlin, a landmark of a reunited Germany.
Choose to visit the TV Tower either in the morning (before 11 am) or later in the evening (after 9 pm). Then head to the tower, present your fast-track ticket and take one of the elevators to the top. It only takes 40 seconds.
From 666 feet above the ground on the observation deck, the view is breathtaking. Check out the 360-degree panorama of Berlin and the surrounding area in all its glory. Pick out top Berlin attractions such as the Berlin Cathedral, the Reichstag, Charlottenburg Palace, and the Brandenburg Gate, to name just a few. Take pictures in every direction and check out the informational displays for more information about the sights and scenery of Berlin.
Hungry? Bar 203 has the solution, offering light snacks and drinks with a stellar view. Stay as long as desired before taking the elevator down.
