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

by matcrazy1

There was the viewing platform at a height of 203 metres (666 feet, entry fee: 6.50 ?). I wasn't there. But I remember the tower from my first trip to Berlin (more exactly East Berlin) when I was 8 or 9yo.

The tower consists of a reinforced concrete shaft topped by a characteristic
steel sphere, which is divided into seven stories. There is a Telecafe there which offers a view of the city. The cafe, which rotates on its own axis, takes 30 minutes to go round.
The tower is the member of the World Federation of Great Towers (WFGT).
