The Fernsehturm (German for "television tower") is a television tower in the city centre of Berlin, Germany. It is a well-known landmark, close to Alexanderplatz. The tower was built between 1965 and 1969 by the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) and its image was used as a symbol of Berlin by the GDR administration. The tower is easily visible throughout central and some surburban districts of Berlin and remains a symbol of the city.
