"Fernsehturm" TV Tower - Fernsehturm Tip by mvtouring

TV Tower - Fernsehturm, Berlin: 102 reviews and 193 photos


Located in the middle of Alexanderplatz is the impressive Berliner Fernsehturm or TV Tower. The tallest building in Berlin, this 368 metre tall tower is visible everywhere!

The TV Tower was built from 1965-69 by the East German government, defying West German with its dizzying height. Below its lofty antenna is a shiny steel sphere, that reflects the cross from the nearby Marienkirche, called "the Pope's revenge" by the West Berliners.

You can take a lift up to the viewing platform, 203 metres above the ground. On a clear day you can see for almost 40kms. Above the observation deck there is the Tele-Café, a revolving restaurant offering those same fabulous views.
