Top sights in Berlin
At 368 meters tall, the TV Tower is the tallest structure in Berlin (and, actually, in the whole of Germany!). What should you look out for during a trip to the top?
Designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster, the glint of the German parliament building's distinctive glass dome should easily catch your eye.
Just south of the Reichstag, you'll see the iconic symbol of German reunification.
See if you can spot the white circle of the stadium, where the infamous 1936 Olympics took place. These days, it has become home to arena concerts and important football matches.
What's that massive patch of dark green in the middle of the city? It's the Tiergarten, Berlin's answer to Central Park, dating back to 1527.
Feeling peckish? No need to come back down to earth. The revolving restaurant allows you to enjoy lunch or dinner while getting 360-degree panoramic views from your seat.
It's advisable, since this is definitely one of the top attractions in Berlin. Many tour options will come with a Fast View ticket, which will take you straight to the front of the line.
Any time of year is fine, but the skies will generally be clearer (and the sunset will happen later!) from May onwards.
Entry is from 9:00AM until midnight from March to October, and 10:00AM to midnight from November until February.
Unfortunately, the tower is not wheelchair accessible for reasons of fire evacuation.

What people are saying about TV Tower
Friendly and efficient security staff, a wonderful lady at reception who went out of her was to insure our party of 10 were seated together and waiters who really looked after us, add to that the wonderful pianist who set the mood , it all adds up to a great evening and happy guests.
If you are going to Berlin, book the Skip The Line Dinner at the TV Tower! It’s an evening you will talk about whenever you tell a story about your trip to Berlin. This is a night that is well worth the price.
My wife and I had a wonderful first night in Berlin atop the TV Tower. This affordable coupon I found online before we traveled gave us a voucher that got us to the front of the line, to the top of the Tower, and a window seat overlooking the city at sunset. Could not have been easier. I definitely recommend it for everyone.
I recommend a pre booked fast pass ticket with restaurant makes it a bit more of a treat. One waitress was rather rude but most staff super helpful and kind .
Getting into the tower and up the elevator was a really nice experience. We did not have to queue except a minute or so right in fron the of the elevators. The elevator operator was very nice and friendly. The view from up the tower was great.
