The view from up the tower is awesome and being from Brasília helped A LOT! There are no maps, no signs pointing to the main buildings nor explaining architectural details of the city. Even finding the elevator/knowing you're able to go up there for free may not be so easy. The view is great, but I'd suggest going there on your last day here, when you would probably know the city a bit more and then would be able to recognize some of the places you've been to.
The tower also hosts a small market selling all types of goods - from food (from different regions of Brazil), to furniture, clothing... Nothing super luxurious, but it's worth walking around. The market is completely open on Saturdays and Sundays, on weekdays you can get something to eat/drink and some souvenirs, but that's it!
If you're not from Brazil, try out "pastel de queijo com caldo de cana" - it's a cheese stuffed and fried "pastry" and a sugar cane juice. It's what locals eat (maybe change the stuffing for meat) and it's DELICIOUS!
Advice: check if it opens on Monday, I'm not sure. :/

There is a free elevator that takes you to the viewing platform approximately one-third of the way up.
The view is fully panoramic, and you can see the satellite towns that are perhaps 20km away.
It will only pass 10-15 minutes of your time, and it's free.

My hotel is close to the Televsion Tower and I first observed it from the rooftop during the daytime. When I came back upstairs to see the sunset the tower was beauitfully illuminated. Supposedly the 4th tallest building in Brasilia, it's a readily identified landmark that helps orient a visitor.

There's a lift to get all the way up, and usually on weekends the line to get the small elevator is boring, but the views are great. Public restrooms available in the area, Quite accessible to phisically challenged people.

To clearly see and understand the beauty of oscar niemeyer's vision of the city, one has to go up the tower. The aeroplane structure of the city landscape is only understood once you see it from here.

They have a beautiful cafe on the earlier floor where a brazilian coffee or a beer is a must. The tower entrance is shut if its too cloudy, windy or rainy. There is a nice I LOVE BRASILIA installation down the tower. A pic there is a must. May become your album cover too.

The TV tower is a central place at Brasília. You can take an elevator and go up inside the tower, so you'll have the best panoramic view of the city. Beside the tower there is a great fair, named Craft Fair (Feira de artesanato) wher you can eat regional brazilian food and buy local craft and memory gifts.

You can have a beautiful view from the City Centre. Plus, there's an arts &crafts fair that is worthy to visit it.

It is one of the symbols of capital city Brasilia. It is worth seeing the 360 degree view of the capital, but it's just about it. With free entrance, there is a lift that takes you to a platform to see the views of the city. Close to the tower (100 meters), there is an artisan's fair that complements your visit (worth a visit) and also the city park (about 500 meters).

To get an idea of the layout of Brasilia and of its famous Pilot Plan I first went to the TV Tower, which is in walking distance from the 'Setor Hoteleiro'. The 230m high construction - opened in 1967 - is still the tallest buidling in Brasilia, elevated according to town planner Lucio Costa on an artifcial hill between the two avenues of the monumental axis, which represents the fuselage of Brasilia's aeroplane design.

At the bottom of the tower are souvenir shops and a sclpture called 'Space Era'. I remember that I had to wait for ages to finally be able to take the elevator together with other people up to the platform called 'Belvedere' at a height of 75m. I had expected more, but I still had to say to myself that I wouldn't get a better overview of the city than from here.

At the so-called 'Mezzanine' at a height of 20m is a Museum for Gems, which I skipped. The visit of the viewing platform is free and open daily except Mondays.

We read about this on Trip Advisor & since we were staying within walking distance AND wanted souvineers decided to visit. Initially went on a Friday after our hotel staff member suggested it would be a good place to find stuff but after walking only found 6 or so stalls. Disappointed, I THEN went to Trip Advisor looking for something to do & realized that there was a free lift up to 75 metres. So we planned on another visit the next day, being Saturday. They take up to 18 people in the lift & there is a limit to the number of people on the platform but our wait was barely 10 minutes so we were really happy as the sun was very hot around 11 a.m. The view was amazing & not at all too crowded. I would say it would be difficult getting decent "selfies" as there is a wire cage surrounding the structure at this height. It didn't bother us but just a comment for those who might like to take these. There were no signs to point out key locations which would have been helpful. We took pictures & knew we could identify strategic points later. When we first arrived the foutains were going but closer to lunch they turned off. Possibly saving water? I would recommend to go in the morning - just in case! But the best surprise was discovering the market buildings with green roofs which, according to a sign, had been relocated from under the TV tower to just down the steps & across the street. We missed seeing that on Friday but Saturday was possibly a better option anyway. Buying souvineers had proved impossible at all the places we had trudged around so we felt we were doomed to be buying at the airport. There were heaps of stalls - lots selling shoes, sandals & women's clothing as well as furniture. Could not find anything to do with the Amazon. But so glad we found this place, as it turned out the airport sold very little. Having said all this we felt that Brazil in general could make use of a captive audience WAY better in terms of selling souvineers in shops in towns. We were surprised that we couldnt find souvineers to purchase in the areas we traveled apart from a couple roadside stalls out of Brasilia & the market near this tower ... but they were mostly about Brasilia, not Brazil in general, I.e. Amazonia, shirts with "Brazil" on them, etc. But in the end we found some stuff so we were happy.
