At 6€ a ticket the Funkturm is definitely worth a visit especially if you traveling on a budget! Whilst the view is primarily of West Berlin you can see as far as Potsdam and Lichtenberg! We visited on a Tuesday, no waiting straight up in the lift and only a short walk from several S-Bahn stations.

Best view in town. Can be busy, but worth a visit. From the windows on top you get texts explaining down below. Restaurant needs reservation if you want a table at the window.

Obviously we are fated never to ascend the Funkturm! We have made numerous visits to Berlin in recent years, and have hoped to ascend the Funkturm. This radio tower (close to Kaiserdamm Ubahn station in the Western suburbs of Berlin) is much cheaper than the Fernsehturm in Alexanderplatz, and is reputed to provide good views. On many occasions the visibility has made a visit unrealistic. On one visit, it was a bright, crisp day with good visibility – so off we went. The tower was closed as the weather was deemed too cold! This May we thought our luck was in. The weather was mild, visibility good and we confirmed on the net that it was open before setting off. When we got there, an official showed us where to go. On arrival at the foot of the tower, however, the ticket office was closed and the lower part of the tower was shrouded in scaffolding, with a crane operating above it. No-one was in sight to ask what was happening; but we waited around for about 20 minutes in case anyone turned up. No-one did. The only people in sight were the workmen operating the crane. So we gave up and went home! We strongly recommend that you phone before setting out to visit the Funkturm; clearly the website is unreliable!

It was a very enjoyable experience and cheap (5 euros per person). We visited the tower in the evening and there was no queue. There was a beautiful view from the top of the tower and there were hardly any people. Our German friends told us that the TV tower experience is much better as it's closer to the city centre - but also it's much more expensive and the waiting time is longer. You should do both towers but if you have not a lot of money or time, Funkturm will do.

I have been up the Funk Turm (Radio Tower) several times when I lived in Berlin from 1982 - 1990. I tried to visit in 2007 and 2015 when we were attending Grune Woche, but being January the tower was closed. I tried again on my most recent visit to Berlin earlier this month, but yes, you guessed it, the tower was closed yet again. I understand it now costs 5 Euros to visit the viewing platform which is a good price. To get a feel for Berlin I believe you have to get some elevation, be it; TV Tower at Alexander Platz, Victory Column, Glockenspiel at Olympic Stadium, Grune Wald Turm or the Funk Turm. All of these mentioned above appear to be closed during the winter, expect TV Tower, so a visit to Berlin during the summer is recommended.
