The city of Berlin has seen a dramatic and turbulent 20th century.

From being at the center of an empire embroiled in the two most destructive wars in history to the creation and demolition of the Berlin Wall, the city has seen relentless upheavals.

While its history is tangible in every cobblestone and historic building, the city has a modern emblem that adores the silhouette of Berlin and stands as a symbol of the city’s resilience.

At a staggering height of 368 meters (1207 feet), the Tower is the tallest building in Germany and the third tallest in the European Union.

The tower’s observation deck and restaurant provide transcendent views of the city from a height of 203 meters (666 feet).
