TV Tower

Explore the TV Tower on your university or college trip to Berlin.

The German Democratic Republic commissioned the TV Tower in the 1960's, with the aim of demonstrating the strength and efficiency of the socialist system.

Designed by architect Hermann Henselmann, the Tower was intended to remind people of the Soviet sputnik satellites. However, in the modern day the Tower defines the silhouette of Germany's capital and is a symbol of the reunified Germany.

Those visiting the tower can expect magnificent views over Berlin's city skyline, along with fantastic opportunities to learn more about the structures history and design.

There is also a bar and restaurant located near the top of the tower if your students wish to purchase refreshments during your visit.
