In the Evening - Berlin at Night with the visit to Berlin Tower (not guided)

Take in spectacular views from the observation deck at a height of 203 meters and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine at Berlins highest bar, the “Panorama bar” 203. The TV Tower is one of the most popular attractions in Berlin. Because it has limited space, there are often prohibitively long queues to buy tickets. Berlin @ Night Sparkle ticket grants you the access to the TV Tower without having to queue at the ticket office and a glass of sparkling wine to enjoy while you admire the city at nighttime! The TV Tower welcomes over 1.2 million visitors every year and is located at the very heart of the capital on the Alexanderplatz. At 368 meters, it’s the highest building in Germany and the second highest building open to the public in Europe. The TV Tower is generally open daily from 9am to midnight.
- A Late Night Ticket grants access to the Tower after 9pm. The ticket is not valid for earlier entry. Unfortunately there’s no access for wheelchairs and pushchairs. For security reasons, in the case of an emergency, visitors must be able to take the stairs down the tower instead of the lifts. For security reasons certain items cannot be taken to the tower such as foods, bottles, cans or other liquids. Access to the TV Tower is also prohibited with prams, skateboards, scooters, bicycles, large pieces of luggage, suitcases, trolleys, weapons or dangerous substances (e.g. gas pressure vessels, glass bottles, fireworks, etc.). Animals are not allowed access to the TV Tower. You must carry your admission ticket with you at all times. The ticket should also be shown upon leaving the tower so ensure you do not lose it.
