Berlin: All tickets & activities

Best view: View from the Berlin television tower

The viewing platform of the Berlin television tower is located at a height of 203 metres. In total the television tower is 368m high. When the weather is good, you can overlook the whole city here. From a bird's eye view, you will look down on the pulsating life of the capital and the most beautiful Berlin sights. Discover the Berlin Cathedral, Frankfurter Allee and other highlights:

1. The Spree

First time here? Then off to the Brandenburg Gate or Checkpoint Charlie. The Spree, on the other hand, is the secret landmark of the capital. It flows around almost every place worth seeing in the metropolis. The well-known Berlin band Seeed sings about the river with the song line: "Big B, home on the Spree". Because the river is the lifeline of Berliners. The view from the Berlin TV tower and its restaurant over the Spree River is especially worth seeing in the early morning hours.

2. Museum Island

Not far from the Funkturm Berlin you can see the Museum Island. It is home to several museums and galleries and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. The Museum Island includes the New and the Old Museum and the Old National Gallery. The most famous photos are taken in front of the Altes Museum, as the small park in front of the building has the funny name "Lustgarten".

3. Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate is one of Berlin's absolute landmarks and can be admired wonderfully from the television tower. Surrounded by the Wall during the time of the divided Germany, today's last city gate stands for freedom, peace and a successful culture of welcome for Berliners. The gate is crowned by the Quadriga, a sculpture designed by Johann Gottfried Schadow. It represents a chariot drawn by four horses.

4. The Victory Column

The Victory Column on the square Großer Stern, is another viewpoint of Berlin. However, with a height of 67 m it does not even measure ¼ of the height of the tower at Alexanderplatz. From the viewing platform of the Berlin television tower, the Victory Column is particularly beautiful to look at. From above, a great picture of the Straße des 17. Junis, the Tiergarten and the Siegessäule (Victory Column) is created.

5. Holocaust Memorial

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, like many other places worth seeing, is located in the centre of the city. From the TV tower, you'll see the Holocaust Memorial stand out above all as a black spot not far from the Brandenburg Gate. The approx. 19,000m² large, corrugated base of the memorial was equipped with 2711 concrete steles, which have different heights but the same basic shape. By their shape, the steles remind one of coffins, the grey colour of the concrete of the ashes of the murdered and subsequently burned Jews during the cruel tyranny of the Nazi regime.

6. Berlin Reichstag

The Reichstag, another highlight of the city of Berlin, is inevitably recognizable even from a height by its huge glass dome. The Reichstag is one of the most visited attractions of the city. A visit to the glass dome and the roof terrace with café is particularly popular. Today the Reichstag is the seat of the German Bundestag. Visitors can take part in guided tours and even in a plenary session.

Tips for visiting the Berlin television tower

Construction work on the television tower began in 1965, and the project was the responsibility of Walter Ulbricht, as the tower was to become the prestige building of the GDR. Even today, the radio tower is still Germany's highest building at 368 metres. Not only the view is obligatory for many visitors. A window table in the restaurant of the television tower is at least as popular. Our tips for a great view, entrance without queuing and probably the most famous revolving restaurant in East Berlin.

Skip-the-line admission to Fernsehturm Berlin

Every year, approximately one million visitors visit the TV tower on Berlin's Alexanderplatz. The viewing floor is the second highest in Germany. For example, the "VHF tower" with its revolving restaurant at a dizzying height is one of the capital's top attractions. The waiting time without an online ticket - often longer than an hour! Those who want to enjoy the view without queuing should definitely buy their ticket in advance. Adults and children pay a slightly higher admission price for the Skip-the-Line ticket (€19.50) than the regular rate (€14.50). Children under 4 years of age have free admission. Discount is available with the Berlin Welcome Card.

Best times & opening hours Berlin TV Tower

From March to October the opening hours of the TV tower are daily from 9:00 to 24:00. From November to February the tower, its lookout days and the Sphere restaurant are open from 10:00 to 24:00. If you have not bought an online ticket and still want to save yourself the waiting time, you should come early as an Early Bird. A visit is popular especially at sunset. Then the window table in the restaurant and in the highest situated Bar 203 is also particularly sought after. By the way, the best time to visit the television tower is the month of May. By the way, the entrance fees do not differ depending on the time of day.

Unique view at sunset

The most beautiful view from the viewing floor is under a blue sky and bright sunshine. Whether during the day or at night is almost irrelevant. Especially beautiful and therefore popular is the view during the summer sunsets. Book your ticket between 20.00 and 22.00 hours to enjoy the special experience. Also a table reservation for the restaurant Sphere in the television tower is a real highlight at this time!

Do I have to book the ticket for the TV Tower in advance?

If you want to experience the view over the roofs of the capital, you have to expect long waiting times at the entrance. Have dinner in the Sphere at a window seat with a view? Almost impossible without a restaurant ticket! Therefore you should definitely buy your ticket online in advance. Online you can buy the skip-the-line ticket and save yourself the waiting time in front of the tower. The entrance fee then costs 19.50 € instead of the regular price. Those who still prefer to visit the Berlin TV tower spontaneously can buy tickets on site at the ticket offices or from the vending machines. Adults pay 14,00 € and children 9,50 €. Comes right after opening hours to avoid long waiting lines.

Feasting in the Berlin television tower - the restaurant "Sphere

A very special experience is a visit to the television tower including a meal in the Sphere restaurant at 207 metres above sea level. Is it worth the price of a seat in the revolving restaurant? The television tower rotates once on its own axis in one hour. With a seat at the window in the Sphere you can look forward to a 360° panoramic view, followed by a cocktail in the highest bar in the city. For all those who want to treat themselves to something special, a visit to the restaurant is great. If you buy a ticket including restaurant reservation, you should allow for a price of 40,00€ per person including food and drinks. But if you don't want to dig so deep into your wallet, you can also just sit down for a snack in the restaurant or a drink at the bar.

How much time to plan for a visit?

If you want to visit the television tower spontaneously, plan a 30-minute wait, even at less busy times of the day. At peak times from 12.00 noon, it can sometimes take considerably longer. If you have booked your tickets online in advance, you will save a lot of time at the entrance. For the tour itself you need about 60 minutes. For a refreshment in the highest bar in town or even a meal in the restaurant of the tower, plan with a little more time.

Directions: The fastest way to the TV tower

Although the television tower is not directly at the Alexanderplatz station, it is in its immediate vicinity. If you are travelling by car, you can park in the underground car park at Alexanderplatz or in the car park in Otto-Braun-Straße. However, visitors can also use public transport to get to the site. By S-Bahn and U-Bahn you can reach the Berlin TV tower via the Alexanderplatz stop. Use underground lines U2, U5, U8 or the suburban railway lines S5 and S75. Several bus lines, for example the 100 or the 200, also serve the Alex and the TV tower at very regular times.
