The Berline Fernsehturm ((TV Tower) is considered one of the largest structures in Europe. It was built in 1969 by a team of architects with the help of Swedish experts. A total length to the top of the spire is 365m.

It contains a concrete shaft, a steel-cladded metal sphere and a TV antenna. The base of Fernsehturm is surrounded by a funny angular and spiky building… it contains a small casino and a fitness center.
