Berlin Radio Tower – one of the symbols of Berlin, a radio tower located in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district, near the Messe Berlin exhibition complex.
The steel tower, designed by the architect Heinrich Straumer, was built in 1924-1926, and It was opened in September 1926 in connection with the third German radio exhibition. It is a historical monument and protected by the state.
The radio tower rises right in the center of the Messe Berlin exhibition complex. The tower is almost 150 meters high and has four observation platforms at different heights from which the panorama of the exhibition complex opens.
The radio tower, being an antenna carrier, serves as a signal tower for aviation. From this radio tower, the first broadcast of the first radio station in 1923 and the world's first television broadcast in 1929 were carried out. During the Second World War, the radio tower supports were damaged, and later they were replaced.
On one of the observation platforms (at a height of 124 meters) a restaurant in retro style was opened. From here you can see not only Messe Berlin, but the whole city.
