TV-Tower, Hamburg: 8 reviews and 10 photos

  TV Tower from the Binnenalster Lake
by antistar

Although there's a campaign to get Hamburg's TV Tower re-opened, it doesn't look like it's about to come online any time soon. So you can forget the glorious vistas that were once enjoyed from its observation deck. For now it provides a gleaming white 60s view of the future, all pancaked UFOs stacked atop of each other cresting in a confusion of parabolic mirrors. It looks like it was designed to be part of the Discovery One spaceship in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

You can get great views of the TV tower from all over Hamburg, as it's relatively close to the centre, but the Binnenalster and the parkland west of the lakes make for the best pictures.
