For someone who has an overall interest in military history was looking forward to visiting this relics of WW2, but what a waste of time. Due to the time of year there were no internal tours & the outside is covered in graffiti with various other forms of detritus littering the area. There is no signage to inform you of what it was used for or any other form of information. While the view over this part of the city is good that is about it. Save yourself the time & effort of going, it’s not worth it.

I decided to explore the Flak Tower and surrounding area after reading about it’s WW2 origin. Although there isn’t any information about this at the tower, I still enjoyed the climb and being able to see a new view of the city. I wouldn’t say it’s a must see, but if you are in the area, it’s worth a visit.

My wife and I were in Berlin for our tenth anniversary so we thought we'd try some historical tours.
We booked the berlin underworld tour 2, from flak towers to mountains of debris.
Our tour guide Elliot spoke excellent German and English and gave the tour in a very friendly and professional manner. His knowledge of the history and technical details was second to nine.
This was a fantastic insight into one of Berlin's infamous wartime monuments that was commissioned by Adolf Hitler himself.
We both really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it or any by Berlin Underworld.

When i was in town i decided to run to the Flak Tower as i wasn't sure my fellow visitors would want to see this structure. I didnt take a tour. The tower is (like much of Berlin) covered in graffiti and all the plaques showing info were damaged or broken so it was hard to see what each part was. The park it is in was very nice and near a swimming pool and station. The view from the top is great, the best part of it from my experience.

Very interesting piece of history that is pretty much invisible until you have walkwed right to it.

A remnant of the past, Flat Tower’s two remaining towers offer amazing views of Berlin.

To get there, you need to climb a hill. Set in a nice park, you don’t feel like being in a city at all.

The only negative being the mess all over the place. Other than that, I very much recommend visiting this place.

If you've done the highlights of Berlin this may be interesting. During WWII the nazi built several air defence towers around Berlin. The are located at quite high point. So after a climb, it offers a great view on the city. Next to that the concrete Bunkers resemble castle's which makes it worth the visit..

Views are ok if not spectacular. Easy to reach by public transport and at the subway station theres a big foodmarket where you can buy beer for the hill and pee. Lots of sitting places up on the hill for beering..

I was very excited to visit this wwii defence bunker. It is very large, on the top of a hill, that you can reach very easily. In order to make the visit safe, a lot of protections were applied. But everything related to the original function was removed.

Clearly signposted from the park entrance opposite Gesundbrunnen S-bahn station, you can climb up the wooden steps to the flak towers at the top which give you pretty good views across the city - though sadly in summer the trees block the view towards the heart of the city. The hill was made of rubble from war damaged Berlin after WWII as well as deliberately destroyed Nazi buildings so you are literally climbing up the city's dark past when you scale the hill.

We went in August and there were two tours that day in English. One at 1100, the other at 1300. There are 155 steps up the stairs to begin the tour and as many during it but it is well worth the time and effort.
