Create an itinerary including Berliner Fernsehturm
Get a bird's-eye view of Berlin from the top of Berliner Fernsehturm, the highest point in the city. A symbol of Berlin since it was erected in the 1960s, this is the tallest structure in Germany. The tower is 368 m (1,207 ft) tall, with an observation deck 204 m (670 ft) above ground. Try to time your visit for a sunny day, as thick fog can obscure the view from the top on overcast days. You can wait for the morning mist to clear at the tower's rotating restaurant, which spins 360 degrees in just under 30 minutes. The tower welcomes nearly 1.5 million tourists each year, so be prepared for a long wait at the entrance. You can avoid standing in line by booking a fixed date and time of your visit on the tower's website.

  • We hesitated going there but we don't regret. You have a great view all around with good explanations. Sometimes many people. You can get discount with Berlin welcome card.

  • Yes, it's made for tourists. Yes, it's expensive. Yes, the restaurant's food is merely good and not otherwise worth the cost. But nothing else matches the view from the a table revolving at the edge....  more

  • Ticket costs about 21 euros but the experience is well worth the cost. You can download a tiny app to your smart phone for an enhanced experience. On a clear day you can see a long ways in every direction. Helpful signs inform you about things of interest. A restaurant and bar are available as well as a clean bathroom.
  • Great experience to see the Berlin city view from the top of the tower and that too from a very good height. The view from the elevator while reaching at the top was quite stunning and spectacular. One can also buy souvenirs from the ground floor. There is a restaurant at the top floor but it was closed at that time. If you have a very less time to see Berlin then from this tower one can see almost everything that he/she has missed.
  • The view is amazing!! The place is very organized and all staff working there very polite. I did not spend much time in the line to buy the ticket and take the lift. The price is a little expensive and if you don’t visit the restaurant you might spend 1 hour for the tour max. For sure it is a very nice place to visit!
  • It costs €25 to go to the observation deck and is worth every cent. There's no time limit and a wealth of information at each viewing window. The stunning architecture at the base feels like a 1960s sci-fi set. Rather than queue for a ticket it's far easier to buy on line and pick your time of entry.
  • Great experience seeing all of Berlin in the tower. If you don't know what to do in the city this is a great place to start. There's information for most buildings in the tower so you can make yourself a list of places you'd like to visit later on. There are only two ticket machines outside, my visit was in September and it wasn't that busy, but I would recommend booking beforehand.
