Why locals love it

Located in former East Berlin, this is Germany’s tallest building with 368 metres. The TV tower is the icon that locals most associate with their city (more than Brandenburg Gate) because you can see it from almost everywhere in the city centre. Although they do not go up many times because it is quite expensive.

Why you should visit it

If you are willing to pay 12,50 € you are definitely rewarded with the greatest scenic view over the city. The restaurant on top of the TV tower is also quite expensive, but a unique experience: Tables are set on a spinning plate that turns around its axis for ever-changing panoramic views.

Special tip

When it was completed the atheist regime didn’t invite the architects to the inauguration because the tower’s sphere reflects a cross in the sunlight.
