What To See From The TV Tower

At 368 meters tall, the TV Tower is the tallest structure in Berlin (and, actually, in the whole of Germany!). What should you look out for during a trip to the top?

Reichstag

Designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster, the glint of the German parliament building's distinctive glass dome should easily catch your eye.

Brandenburg Gate

Just south of the Reichstag, you'll see the iconic symbol of German reunification.

Olympic Stadium

See if you can spot the white circle of the stadium, where the infamous 1936 Olympics took place. These days, it has become home to arena concerts and important football matches.

Tiergarten

What's that massive patch of dark green in the middle of the city? It's the Tiergarten, Berlin's answer to Central Park, dating back to 1527.

Revolving Restaurant

Feeling peckish? No need to come back down to earth. The revolving restaurant allows you to enjoy lunch or dinner while getting 360-degree panoramic views from your seat.

What People Are Saying About TV Tower

Fiirst group to the top of the tower - definitely worth it.

Skip the long queue & go straight to the observation deck. We started early and had excellent choice of views. Definitely worth the extra funds...

To save queuing it was definitely a good idea to book before we went

The tower is situated in a very busy part of Berlin with lots of shops and eateries. If you do not book beforehand you will queue for a while to get in. The view is fantastic and probably the best time to visit is between 12 and 2 pm when hopefully it is clear enough to see for miles.

You have to book through these guys. Saved us at least 2 hours.

Would always use again to book tickets. Saved us at least 2 hours. We had a 3 hour pass booked a table and had a great meal. You have to do this if you come to Berlin. 10/10. Thanks

The view was amazing, we were lucky as the night was very clear.

Staff were very helpful - obviously drinks were quite expensive, but you are really paying for the view. Could be more seating though.
