I'd read about the revolving restaurant in the TV tower a few years ago, so we decided to book lunch at the Sphere. Situated at 207m, a booking at the restaurant (€23.50pp) is only a few euros more than the €17.50 fast track entry to...More

The view is amazing if you get a window table, level-serving, inspirational food. You can book and buy tickets online- its so easy. if you going to Berlin, this is one of the things that would be a mistake if you do not visit.

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

I think you can check the sunset times online, probably just search sunset times in December 2017 and then put in Berlin then it can give you a good idea. Hope you have a lovely time :)

In the historic revolving restaurant, Sphere, towering 207m above the city, you can experience Germany's highest culinary tour. Indulge yourself with refined Berlin cuisine from morning till night. So take a seat on the comfortable burgundy chairs and let l yourself be spoiled by the special ambience. The mixture of modern design and retro chic, a "starry sky" on the ceiling as a musical accompaniment on the piano creates a very special flair. The rotating platform also includes an unforgettable 360 ° city tour. Nowhere else can you get an overview of the whole of Berlin!
