Top sights in Berlin
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?
Designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster, the glint of the German parliament building's distinctive glass dome should easily catch your eye.
Just south of the Reichstag, you'll see the iconic symbol of German reunification.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Any time of year is fine, but the skies will generally be clearer (and the sunset will happen later!) from May onwards.
Entry is from 9:00AM until midnight from March to October, and 10:00AM to midnight from November until February.
Unfortunately, the tower is not wheelchair accessible for reasons of fire evacuation.

What people are saying about TV Tower
The building is amazing and the view is fantastic from 200 metres up in the observation deck. I heartily recommend fast track tickets too - we hardly had to wait and it made the whole thing much quicker and more manageable with kids. Definitely the best way to see the city and you can enjoy a drink in the bar when you're up there against the spectacular view. A definite must do for visitors to this fascinating city.
This was a must revisit for myself and my family. Not been up the tower since 1989 when still in east berlin. Vurtually the same, although the surrounding area has really improved since the fall of the Berlin wall. Will be back again one day, hopefully the weather might be better for the views though
Stunning view from the top. Went up to restaurant for a coffee and got a window seat! Amazing, continually changing views as the restaurant rotates. My wife felt a bit queasy but I thought it was amazing. Really enjoyed the experience. Recommended.
A great choice for something to do on a Sunday as all main shops closed. It was good to be able to bypass the queue with this pass. The Tower gives a very informative 360 degree perspective of Berlin so worth considering if time is of the essence.
Getting into the tower and up the elevator was a really nice experience. We did not have to queue except a minute or so right in fron the of the elevators. The elevator operator was very nice and friendly. The view from up the tower was great.
