Standing at 1,207 ft. (368 m), the Fernsehturm, also known as the TV Tower is the tallest structure in Berlin and the third tallest in Europe. The best part? It’s a five-minute walk from the Citystay Hostel!

This disco ball in the sky is one of Berlin’s most popular symbols. This disco ball in the sky is visible from nearly any area in the city. And if you find yourself lost in Mitte or even Prenzlauer Berg, the TV Tower is a great North Star for finding your way back to the city center.
