203 m above Alexanderplatz one has the best view of the old centre of the city.
As the second-highest television tower in Europe, the "TV asparagus" is regarded alongside the Brandenburg Gate as the landmark symbol of the city. With a height of 365 m, the tower, which was built from 1966-69 and has a glass dome, can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. On clear days, there are so many visitors on the viewing platform at a height of 203 m that long queues form in front of the lifts. You might have to wait for an hour before a lift catapults you up to the top in just 40 sec. The Telecafé above the viewing platform rotates around its own axis twice an hour. On a good day, you can enjoy a clear view for up to 40 km. The building offers an excellent view. Prices: adults EUR 20.
