With a height of 368 metres the Berlin television tower is the highest building in Germany. And being the second tallest building in Europe it has nothing to hide.

The tower was built during the years of 1965 – 1969. Following this it quickly developed into one of the biggest tourist magnets in the capital. Thousands of visitors bustle up to the 203 meter high panoramic floor. Berlin’s highest bar is also located here. On a clear day the views extend over the entire municipal area and visibility can reach up to 100 kilometres. Those who want to go even higher should visit the Tele-cafe right at the top of the tower. The trick here is that the entire sphere rotates on its axis, taking approximately half an hour for one complete rotation.

Visitors can also be seated at a table which automatically rotates on its own axis, so enabling you to enjoy a perfect all-round view.

The lifts in the tower provide a special attraction in themselves. They are among the fastest in the world and take visitors over 200metres high in just 40 seconds; they are a technical masterpiece that many visitors want to experience at least once.

However, as a visitor to the Berlin Fernsehturm one should expect long waiting times– particularly in the summer. The visitor influx is simply massive. Although the tower is only approximately 40 years old, it has become a symbol of Berlin and greatly shapes the cities landscape.
