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?


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.


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.

Is the tower wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately, the tower is not wheelchair accessible for reasons of fire evacuation.

What People Are Saying About TV Tower

See parts of Berlin from a different perspective

Who doesn't enjoy a river trip? Who enjoys a serene journey through a city that presents an eclectic mosaic of historical and modern architecture? This 1 hour break away from the hustle and bustle works whatever the weather. However, in October, it can be a bit bracing for some but the best photographic opportunities are up on deck although there is the obvious attraction of a warmer environment down below. The boat was clean, comfortable and the accompanying snack and cordial most welcome. The trip commentary was given in both German and English. I think if I come again, it would be in the warmer months but the trees were displaying some autumn finery and made for a colourful backdrop to this colourful city. If I had one piece of advice it would be that ifyour hotel cannot print out the required voucher, there should be an acceptable alternate to the boat company who on this occasion were more than helpful to make sure I was able to get on board. A trip worth taking. Well done.

Good tour - The bus is the black and white one and route maps on bus

Good tour - only two comments: It wasn't clear from the voucher that the bus we booked was the black and white one (there are several companies operating so a photo would have been good). Also, it was hard to get a route map online to select the nearest bus stop to hotel. All staff very friendly. Pick your guide.
