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.

What people are saying about TV Tower

A wonderful dining and sightseeing experience all rolled into one.

Friendly and efficient security staff, a wonderful lady at reception who went out of her was to insure our party of 10 were seated together and waiters who really looked after us, add to that the wonderful pianist who set the mood , it all adds up to a great evening and happy guests.

It was an amazing experience that lived up to our expectations!

If you are going to Berlin, book the Skip The Line Dinner at the TV Tower! It’s an evening you will talk about whenever you tell a story about your trip to Berlin. This is a night that is well worth the price.

Perfect Evening for our first night in Berlin

My wife and I had a wonderful first night in Berlin atop the TV Tower. This affordable coupon I found online before we traveled gave us a voucher that got us to the front of the line, to the top of the Tower, and a window seat overlooking the city at sunset. Could not have been easier. I definitely recommend it for everyone.

Fantastic views it was rather hot up there but it was Avery hot day .

I recommend a pre booked fast pass ticket with restaurant makes it a bit more of a treat. One waitress was rather rude but most staff super helpful and kind .

We had a great time visiting the TV tower

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.
