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 is the price?Normal adult tickets start from €13.00, and more VIP experiences range upwards from there.
- Will I need a guide?Not necessarily, though there are several Berlin city tours that include a trip to the top.

- Additional tips

What People Are Saying About TV Tower
First time we tried a bus tour . Really loved the freedom of being able to hop in and off . Informative friendly guide . Would highly recommend .
Good view, despite the rain! The hamburger was good and the dessert nice. The viewing deck was very crowded and children often sit on the viewing pictures, making it difficult to see. Overall a good experience.
The guide was an expressive speaker, we were late and they helped us to find the group when we couldn't they offered us the next tour in 2 hours very accommodating
Did all three tours which gave excellent coverage of East,West and Central Berlin. Need two days to see main sights using hop on hop off facility. The East and West tours had on board guides who were excellent whereas the central tour was pre-recorded tape. Good value.
The views along the river were splendid blending the old with the new. We started off with a drink then a 3 course dinner (two drinks are included in the overall cost) More drinks were available but you paid for those. The food was nothing special - limited choice for the main course, but the best think about this was going to the upper deck afterwards. We were fortunate with the weather and the warm evening, cruising gently up the River Spree was a delight. You got a recorded guide in English to point out the sights and it was fun ducking down when you went under some of the bridges. We spotted a couple of great places to eat/drink on the way and visited those on other days. At around £43 it was well worth it for a 2 - 3 hour river cruise with dinner.
