One of the most remarkable things you can do in Berlin is, for the better or the worst, inside one of the most touristic landmarks of our beloved city. This is to have a Sunday brunch on the Fernsehturm, or as the rest of the world calls it, the TV Tower.
I’m doing this post to tell you that going to the Fernsehturm with tons of tourists will not be as painful and boring as you think, it is actually pretty cool and the food is delicious!
How are the prices at the Fernsehturm in Berlin?
This is the part where you get outraged by the audacity of some people. The TV Tower will charge 20€ per person for the place by the window. Is it too damn much? YES. Is it worth it? OF COURSE. Why? Between paying 11€ just to get in and paying 20€ for my own table by the window, sorry, I stick with the 2nd option. Besides, you ain’t going all the way up there to sit in the hallway, right?
After you select the date and time of your visit, you’ll receive and email with the confirmation and please print it out. Germany is still really old school.
Save around 50€ for the whole experience and stop complaining because I know that you spent more than that in schnapps and beer last weekend. It is 50€ for a unique experience of being in a place that rotates and shows you the whole city, 360. degrees. It is worth it!
One tip I can give you is that, be aware of everything. The waitress will ask you “How do you want your eggs, Sir?” but don’t get fooled by this! Oh no no no… Even the big 13€ option of breakfast mentions no egg! This is an extra! So if you do not care a lot about eggs in the morning because you’re more than fine with everything else, leave it out, you’ll save around 4€ or 5€ in the end.
The place is fantastic and the decoration is impeccable. It is for sure one of the nicest places I’ve seen
for a touristy restaurant of course. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the ball and this means that you’ll not endure all those people talking and taking pictures while you’re are eating. And if you had your table reserved beforehand, it means that you’re a VIP, so no lines for going up or down the tower for you!
Another thing that it is worth to mention is that the whole restaurant is round. Round and moving. There are tables from 1 to 40, it is nice to memorize the number of your table in case you need to fresh it up before or after your meal.
The rotating mechanism works like this, there’s a clear division in the middle of the floor separating the side that faces the windows (tables) and the side where you enter and where the bar is. The first part is in constant and really slow moving, so once you’re sitting next to a window and you have your morning coffee, you’ll be experiencing a unique and fantastic 360-degree view of Berlin. Every 30 minutes, it completes its rotation and you will be back where you start it.
