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.

  • This is an truly unattractive eyesore in Alexanderplatz, However, the views from the top are quite nice, weather permitting.

  • Pleasant experience in one of the most famous tourist attractions in Berlin. I liked the burger I ordered better than many other places. What was not necessarily my favorite part is the rotating restaurant. While it gives a chance to see Berlin better from a great vantage point, I prefer to be stationed while eating.
  • The view is awesome. The restaurant is great. The food is really good albeit pricey for the view. The people are very friendly and I was upgraded to a window table just because they had them available. I go there every year on special occasions.
