The television tower at Alexanderplatz is, next to the Brandenburger Tor, the most famous town’s landmark of Berlin. With a height of 203 meters, the tower is the tallest building in Germany.
In the 1960’s, the GDR needed a broadcasting system that was able to transmit with high power. After barely four years of construction, the television tower was inaugurated in 1669 and stylized by the GDR leadership as a state prestige object.
Nowadays, the still operating transmitter mast is one of the most popular excursion destinations in Berlin. Within 40 seconds, an elevator will take you to the viewing platform on the dome of the TV tower. In ‘Sphere’ restaurant you can dine over the roofs of the city or alternatively have a drink in Bar 203, named after the height of the tower.
If you want to visit the TV tower, you can buy a ticket online without waiting. Otherwise, tickets are sold directly at the counter. In the revolving restaurant 360° (it rotates 360° once an hour) you can also indulge yourself in international and seasonal specialities.
Reservation for the viewing platform is recommended.
The unique panorama alone is a reason to visit the Berlin TV Tower. A romantic dinner or an unforgettable family experience is guaranteed with the restaurant with its delicious food and the endless view of Berlin and its surroundings.
