Already been to Berlin, but still haven't gone up the TV Tower?
Then you still haven't seen all that Berlin has to offer! At 368 metres (1207 feet), the television tower is the tallest publicly accessible building in Europe. It was built by the East German government in 1969 in the heart of Berlin's Mitte district, near Alexanderplatz. Every day, hundreds of tourists and Berliners flock to the TV Tower to enjoy the views from high over Berlin that extend for miles. It's the perfect spot to see all of the vast German capital at once. The combination of an interesting history, fascinating views, modern architecture, and good food in its restaurant make the TV Tower an irresistible Berlin attraction. The lifts take just 40 seconds to take you to the viewing platform with exclusive 360° views of Berlin from 203 m above the city.
