Berlin’s TV Tower Revolving Restaurant: Is It Worth It? & View

While the views are great from Duck and Waffle in London, the problem is that you can’t choose your view.

Although, the views from the Berlin TV Tower restaurant aren’t spectacular by any means as you can see.

Is it disorientating to be spinning and eating? Not really. The restaurant revolves at such as slow pace it’s barely noticeable.

Aside from the view, the food is actually pretty good. I was really happy with my Tower breakfast (Reblochon de Savoie (french raw milk cheese), Milan salami, San Michele pork ham, mortadella, smoked salmon, assorted jam, honey, butter, coffee smoothie, fresh fruit, spelt and whole grain bread, wheat rolls) and think it’s worth it price when you total the whole experience. It makes me wish London had a revolving restaurant. You can see all the menus here.

Also known as Berliner Fernsehturm (locals also refer to it as a speared onion), Berlin’s TV tower is the tallest structure, not only in Berlin but the whole of Germany. So if you’re looking for panoramic views of the city, there is no better place. Standing at 368m, it can be seen piercing the sky from anywhere around the city, much like the Eiffel Tower (the Berlin TV tower is 70m taller).

Incredibly, it only takes 40 seconds to reach the observatory deck thanks to Europe’s fastest elevator which reaches speeds of 47mph.
