    The TV tower is something that you can't miss when your in the east/mitte of berlin. I'm not joking doesn't matter where you go you can always see it. It's 365m tall and a bit weird apparently the view from the top in the revolving restaurant is wonderful. That's if you can be bothered queueing for hours I couldn't! Still, at the bottom there's a little machine that you can put coins in and after being put under pressure of 80 tonnes they come out with a stamp of the TV tower on them. Great souvenir huh!? Well it did bring a smile to my flat mates face ;)

    An eyesore and a half, and the most enduring architectural legacy of Communism, the 'TV Tower' was built, supposedly, to help East Berlin telecom authorities transmit ... three black-and-white television stations. It's no mystery that the real purpose of the inescapably huge tower was to spy on West Berlin.

    View Berlin from the top of the Televison Tower.
    At the bottom of the windows, going entirely around the tower, they have placed a photo and description of different landmarks that can be viewed from that point in the tower.

    The day we went to the TV tower was very overcast but I did enjoy the view anyway. I believe it only cost 10DM.

    Visit the Fernsehturm (Television Tower) and get great aerial views of Berlin. It costs €8.50 but well worth it.

    The TV-tower is situated in the centre of Berlin. This is something you don't see often.
    From the TV-tower you can overview the whole city.

    The TV Tower is located in Berlin`s center, in Alexanderplatz. You can go up to observation deck to see Berlin.

    Though it's not the prettiest ever structure, the TV tower is visible all over the city and is useful for getting your bearings when you're lost.

    Go to the top and have a great view og Berlin. The Telecafé offers a breath-taking view of the city. The café, which rotates on its own axis, takes 30 minutes to go round.
