Though it may not be lined with skyscrapers, there are plenty of places to catch a heart-stopping glimpse of the German capital if you know where to look.
If you’re hoping to snag that perfect snapshot of the Berlin skyline, there are several places to do so not housed atop a five-star hotel. From a hot air balloon to an abandoned spy station to the top of the city’s TV tower, the following spots offer stunning views. Note that you may wish to come early or reserve a spot, as they tend to fill up with people looking to bask in the bright lights of the big city.
The spectacular Norman Foster-designed glass dome – which sits atop the partially reconstructed 1800s building and houses the German parliament – showcases a 360-degree panorama of the heart of the city.
Yes, it’s touristy, but even most Berliners will confess to having stood in line for an eternity to scale the heights of the city’s iconic TV tower in Alexanderplatz at least once. Affectionately known as “the Alex,” it’s the unofficial symbol on the capital and the most distinctive feature of its skyline. Skip dinner at the restaurant and purchase a ticket for the Observation Deck instead.
Hovering 150 metres above the ground, you’ll spy a giant tethered helium balloon, which rises with a new load of passengers every 15 minutes. If you’re looking for the ultimate spot to snap a brag-worthy Berlin selfie, this might just be the place to do it.
Named the “Devil’s Mountain” in German, this looming man-made landmark in West Berlin has an eerie vibe and an unsettling history. Though it served as an NSA spy station during more troubled times, the facility has long since been abandoned and visitors are welcome to take tours of the graffiti-covered hallways. At a height of roughly 80 metres above the surrounding area, it may not be the tallest observation point, but it’s certainly one of the most interesting.
