"An eyesore and a half, and the..." TV Tower - Fernsehturm Tip by ucbwalker

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


An eyesore and a half, and the most enduring architectural legacy of Communism, the 'TV Tower' was built, supposedly, to help East Berlin telecom authorities transmit ... three black-and-white television stations. It's no mystery that the real purpose of the inescapably huge tower was to spy on West Berlin.
