Observation Deck · Architectural Building
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.

  • Good all round view of the City with lots of interenting information. A must see if you are in Berlkin  more »
  • As expected, the place offers great views of the city, the elevator is also interesting, but beware the long queues. As a tip, try going during week days, as it can make a 2h difference in wait time.  more »
  • very good information about the buildings that we could see. The climate in the tower is rather stuffy. There was not enough oxigen in the room.  more »

  • Worth a visit for the views, 25euro just for entry per person if u are having dinner in the restaurant about . A little cheaper if u just go for a drink in the bar. Excellent views of Alexanderplatz, drinks are priced good . Bar staff were excellent although sometimes it can take a while to be served. Can get busy up there at times .
  • If you don't want to wait for hours make sure you buy the fast track tickets which five you access at a certain time. Views were lovely. It would help if the photos of buildings were lit to make it easier to read.
  • Order tickets online, so you have a saved timeslot. Or come on advance and by the ticket, then go for dinner or something else. The waiting time is usually one to two hours. But absolutely worth the wait. Spectacular view of all of Berlin.
  • Unreal views! Tickets are reasonably priced, didn't have to wait long at all. We came in December 2 weeks before christmas and the views down on the markets were amazing. Cocktails were delicious and it wasn't too busy which was surprising. Cant comment on food as we only went to the bar on the observation deck.
  • One of the top attractions in berlin...It was a nice experience... It costs 24 Euro for the visit.. You'll be taken to 203 metre high above the city.. there is a bar and restaurant up there.. Have a good time guys.. Cheers
