What To See From The TV Tower

At 368 meters tall, the TV Tower is the tallest structure in Berlin (and, actually, in the whole of Germany!). What should you look out for during a trip to the top?

Reichstag

Designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster, the glint of the German parliament building's distinctive glass dome should easily catch your eye.

Brandenburg Gate

Just south of the Reichstag, you'll see the iconic symbol of German reunification.

Olympic Stadium

See if you can spot the white circle of the stadium, where the infamous 1936 Olympics took place. These days, it has become home to arena concerts and important football matches.

Tiergarten

What's that massive patch of dark green in the middle of the city? It's the Tiergarten, Berlin's answer to Central Park, dating back to 1527.

Revolving Restaurant

Feeling peckish? No need to come back down to earth. The revolving restaurant allows you to enjoy lunch or dinner while getting 360-degree panoramic views from your seat.

TV Tower: Our Tips

Do I need to book a tour in advance?

It's advisable, since this is definitely one of the top attractions in Berlin. Many tour options will come with a Fast View ticket, which will take you straight to the front of the line.

When should I go?

Any time of year is fine, but the skies will generally be clearer (and the sunset will happen later!) from May onwards.

What are the opening hours?

Entry is from 9:00AM until midnight from March to October, and 10:00AM to midnight from November until February.

Is the tower wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately, the tower is not wheelchair accessible for reasons of fire evacuation.

What People Are Saying About TV Tower

Very good way to learn the most of Berlin in 3 hours.

Georgia was a really interesting guide. She really seems to enjoy what she does and she was also interacting with us at all times. She showed us most of the importand things in Berlin through jokes and references to things that everybody knows eg movies. We really enjoyed it.

Great introduction to the city, fabulous guide, great fun.

Easy to find the pick up point. Knowledgeable friendly guide - gave a sensitive history of the city. Great activity for your first day to see all the main sights you can then choose which ones to go back and see in detail. We covered a great distance that I wouldn't want to have walked and would have missed seeing so much if we'd travelled underground.
