This Tower overpowers Berlin and is centrally located at Alexanderplatz. To be in Berlin and not visit here is like being in Paris and not visiting the Eiffel Tower. The views are excellent, the revolving restaurant is the icing on the cake and makes the whole experience wonderful.
After reviewing posts about the tower we knew there would be queues, so we purchased our tickets in advance (booking for 2100 hours) from a machine outside the front door. It was simple and easy to follow and offers time slots. We paid for VIP, thus no queues and a guaranteed table with a window in the restaurant. We arrived 15 minutes early and were allowed through to head towards the viewing area. We were advised to make our way to the reception for the restaurant at our chosen time to ensure we didn’t get delayed in being shown to our table.
The lift is smooth and very, very fast, your ears do pop when travelling up but it's part of the fun!
The restaurant rotates while you are sat eating so you’re able to observe and absorb the stunning views of Berlin. We all agreed (there was 4 of us) that this was one of the coolest and best attractions in Berlin. The food served in the restaurant was excellent, the service was extremely attentive and efficient. We arrived at out table for 21:00, had the most enjoyable meal and left around 23:15, never once feeling we were being pestered or hurried along.
All together, a wonderful experience. Not the cheapest (total was 300 Euros' including tip for 4) but I would highly recommend paying the extra to fully appreciate and enjoy the experience without the hassle of queuing.
