In Berlin, the radio tower is affectionately known as the "Long Lulatsch". When it was inaugurated on September 3, 1926, the Berlin Radio Tower was the tallest tower in Germany. As a landmark and excursion destination, the radio tower is still known and popular today. Look and feast is the motto. The tower, which is 147 meters high in total, on the Berlin exhibition grounds, invites visitors then as now to take in the panoramic view from the viewing platform and restaurant.

The iron technology monument Funkturm, which broadcast Germany's very first television picture in 1929, is popular as a typical Berlin postcard motif. But why just look up when you can also look down? On the open-air platform at a height of 126 meters, visitors can let the famous Berlin air blow around their noses.

In the lower restaurant, which is located at a height of 55 meters, the interior design is reminiscent of the 1920s. The walls are paneled with wooden inlay work designed by Victor Lurjé, a member of the famous artist community "Wiener Werkstätten". In the listed ambience, you can feel the charm of the time when television was still in its infancy.

The ride in the modern, radio-controlled elevator with transparent walls and panoramic view takes only 33 seconds to reach the platform nowadays.

Even though its original functions have long since been switched off, the radio tower exudes typical Berlin charm. He is a Berlin icon. Robust and not to be shaken by anything!
