Create an itinerary including Berliner Fernsehturm
Get a bird's-eye view of Berlin from the top of Berliner Fernsehturm, the highest point in the city. A symbol of Berlin since it was erected in the 1960s, this is the tallest structure in Germany. The tower is 368 m (1,207 ft) tall, with an observation deck 204 m (670 ft) above ground. Try to time your visit for a sunny day, as thick fog can obscure the view from the top on overcast days. You can wait for the morning mist to clear at the tower's rotating restaurant, which spins 360 degrees in just under 30 minutes. The tower welcomes nearly 1.5 million tourists each year, so be prepared for a long wait at the entrance. You can avoid standing in line by booking a fixed date and time of your visit on the tower's website.

  • The view from the Fernsehturm is impressive. The TV tower soars up to 368 meters in the sky. The sphere is made of steel and coverd by glass which is almost 203 meters from the ground, the elevators....  more

  • If was okay but underwhelming. The view itself was okay but the windows seemed almost foggy and not very clean so the view was obstructed. It felt like a bit of a gimmick to be honest. Certainly...

  • Ticket costs about 21 euros but the experience is well worth the cost. You can download a tiny app to your smart phone for an enhanced experience. On a clear day you can see a long ways in every direction. Helpful signs inform you about things of interest. A restaurant and bar are available as well as a clean bathroom.
  • Great experience to see the Berlin city view from the top of the tower and that too from a very good height. The view from the elevator while reaching at the top was quite stunning and spectacular. One can also buy souvenirs from the ground floor. There is a restaurant at the top floor but it was closed at that time. If you have a very less time to see Berlin then from this tower one can see almost everything that he/she has missed.
