TV Tower

Enjoy dinner perched high atop the rest of the city and watch the views from that vantage point. Known locally as the Fernsehturm, the Berlin TV Tower is one of the most popular amongst other tourist spots.

Situated in the center of the city, this tower was built between 1965 and 1969. Standing 368 meters tall, it is easily the tallest structure in the city and can be easily viewed from all parts of the city as well as from the suburbs. Few people are aware of the fact that the original height of the tower was 365 meters and the extra height was gained in the 1990s after the installation of a new antenna.

Tourists should not miss out visiting the visitor platform that is located at a height of approximately 204 meters above ground level. From here they can view the city and beyond, especially during a clear day, when the visibility can easily reach a distance of 42 kilometers.

The famous restaurant that rotates once every 30 minutes lies a bit above the visitor platform. Tourists can access the same via two elevators that covers the distance in just 40 seconds. The brave of heart can opt in for climbing up the 986 steps of the steel stairway.
