Bar 203 – the TV Tower – is the tallest structure in Germany and one of the most iconic buildings Berlin. Built by the DDR as a symbol of the east, a beacon of progress, it remains one of the most distinctive buildings in the city, an enormous silver ball perched atop a silver spike and capped with a red and white striped needle reminiscent of the rocket in Tintin: Destination Moon, a mid-twentieth century view of the future. Speaking of views, the building also houses a restaurant and a fully stocked bar that offers at 203 metres above Berlin – one of the highest and best panoramas of the city. This is the place to head to take in a classic cocktail while looking out on the bustle of Berlin below and musing on the complex changes that century has wrought on the place. You’ll be aided in your contemplation by the revolving of the restaurant as it makes a full 360-degree rotation every 30 minutes. It’s a white, light space, the view the main focus of the room, the Reichstag and the Tiergarten dotted below. Grab a glass of wine or a G&T and play spot the landmark. On a clear day you can see for well over twenty miles around. Bar Interior Photographer: Katrin Bernsteiner
