Visit Berlin's architectural landmark, the Television Tower, which is 368 metres high and can be seen from all over the city. The restaurant and dome at the top of the tower offer a stunning 360-degree view of the German capital. Around 1.2 million people visit the TV Tower every year, making it one of Berlin's most important tourist destinations.
The TV tower was built in the 1950s on the city's most famous square, Alexanderplatz. The enthusiasm of the time for space travel and rockets is evident in the architecture and some of the inspiration for the tower came from the Soviet Sputnik satellite. To this day, the TV Tower is still used as a TV tower and around 60 TV and radio channels are broadcast from the tower.
The TV tower can be visited for a fee and if you want to have dinner in the restaurant, it is a good idea to book a table in advance.
