The Fernsehturm or television tower was built between 1965-9 by the former GDR and is the third tallest structure in Europe. The tower now stands at 368m and is visible throughout Berlin. The visitors platform, which is in the dome at 204m can be reached in 40 seconds by lift. The platform gives spectacular views of up to 40kms on a clear day. There is also a large restaurant which rotates every 30 minutes. Just like the the Gaint Ferris wheel in Vienna if you fancy a different wedding your can also get married in the tower followed by a reception in the restaurant.
