Berlin TV Tower

The Berlin TV Tower is a celebrated, historic icon of the city, and an instantly recognisable feature in the city’s main centre. It was originally constructed in the 1960s by the East German government, and once stood as a symbol of Communist power, and now serves as the TV tower for many prominent radio and television networks. Standing at over 368 metres tall, it is the highest building in Germany, and the third tallest building in the EU. And with an observation deck at the top level, at 203 metres, it is a great place to enjoy fantastic views across the city.

The Berlin TV Tower also features a bar and rotating restaurant at the top level, giving visitors the chance to enjoy a unique environment to enjoy a drink or a relaxing meal in. Open day and night, you can take in stunning views over Berlin, including striking night-time panoramas over the city as it lights up after dark.

Visitors in October might also get to witness the annual Festival of Lights, during which the Berlin TV Tower is illuminated with unique light installations, making it an even more prominent and fascinating feature.

Being one of the most visible buildings in Berlin, the Berlin TV Tower has become an important part of the city’s identity, and often features prominently in film and TV as an easily recognisable feature of Berlin. The nearby area of Alexanderplatz is also a vibrant and interesting area to explore, with many great places to eat and drink, shopping centres, and more.

Travel tips

Berlin TV Tower travel tips

  • The Berlin TV Tower is easy to get to via public transport, and as the tallest building in the city, it is very easy to identify. The area around it, Alexanderplatz, is often a common spot for meeting guided tour groups, and is a great place to enjoy a quick refreshment before you start a tour.
  • The tower is one of the city’s most highly visited and popular attractions, but can only allow up to 400 visitors at a time. During busy periods, this means that there can be lengthy waiting times, so it is well worth planning your visit in advance, to make sure you do not have to wait for hours in line.
  • If you have purchased an advance ticket, make sure that you arrive on time – you will be allowed a grace period of 10 minutes to allow for brief delays, but beyond that, your ticket will be voided.
  • There are some restrictions for visitors which are important to note. Prams and pushchairs are not allowed in the tower, however, they can be left downstairs in the entrance area, and children can be taken upstairs with accompanying adults.
  • There are no safety provisions or barriers in place for disabled visitors due to the construction of the tower, so the tower is not suitable for wheelchair users, or visitors who use any kind of mobility aids such as crutches and walking sticks. Dogs are generally not allowed in the tower, however, there is an exception for guide dogs.
