Berlin TV Tower (Berliner Fernsehturm) Tours

Soaring 1,207 feet (368 meters) over Alexanderplatz, Berlin’s TV Tower (Berliner Fernsehturm) is Germany’s tallest structure. Built to mark the 20th anniversary of the German Democratic Republic in 1969, the tower was intended to be a symbol of East Germany’s achievements as a socialist society. Today it’s one of the capital’s most visited landmarks, affording 360-degree views over the entire city.

The Basics
Visitors can take in the views from the 666-foot-high (203-meter-high) observation deck, grab a drink at Berlin’s highest bar, or book a table at the revolving Sphere restaurant. A visit to the tower is included on many sightseeing tours and hop-on hop-off bus tours of Berlin. It’s also a popular photo stop on walking, biking, and Segway city tours, and can be seen on sightseeing cruises along the River Spree. Choose a skip-the-line ticket to avoid a long wait.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Discounted entry is available for Berlin Welcome Card holders.
  • Ticket holders should arrive 15 minutes before the allotted time in order to pass through security.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available on-site.
  • Restaurant visitors should leave their coats at the free coat-check at the entrance.
  • Large items, backpacks, and strollers are prohibited inside the tower.
  • Due to safety concerns, wheelchair users and those with limited mobility are not permitted to enter the tower.

How to Get There
The Berlin TV Tower is located on Alexanderplatz in the Mitte neighborhood, about a 10-minute walk from nearby attractions such as Berlin Cathedral and Museum Island. The tower can also be reached by S-bahn (Alexanderplatz station), U-bahn (Klosterstraße station), and tram (Alexanderplatz). Paid car parking is located at Alexanderplatz and Otto-Braun Street.

When to Get There
The Berlin TV Tower is open daily, but with more than 1.2 million annual visitors, it can get crowded, especially during summer and holidays. Opt for an early morning visit for the best chance to beat the throngs. Alternatively, head up to the observation deck after dark for an unforgettable view of Berlin’s skyline. Other atmospheric times to visit include during the Berlin Festival of Lights in October and the Alexanderplatz Christmas Market. 

The View from the Tower
The viewing platform of the Berlin TV Tower offers panoramic views over the city below. Display panels help you pinpoint such top attractions as the Reichstag (parliament) building, the Brandenburg Gate, and the Spree River. Farther afield you might spot the Olympic Stadium, Tempelhof airport, and the Tiergarten, or remains of the Berlin Wall and the many monuments of the UNESCO-listed Museum Island.
