Berliner Funkturm is a popular landmark and tourist attraction in Berlin. Built between 1924 and 1926 by Heinrich Straumer, the Funkturm Berlin is one of the oldest radio towers in Europe and a protected monument. Built from steel in a manner similar to the Eiffel Tower, it rises from the Berlin trade fair ground in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf borough to a height of 150m. From 1935 the Berliner Funkturm also broadcast the first, regular television programme on earth.
At the top of the Berliner Funkturm is a restaurant and viewing platform which offers stunning panoramic views over Berlin. For this reason the Berliner Funkturm is a very popular tourist attraction. At night the tower is often lit up with neon lighting, making it a 24 hour landmark visible for miles around. Among the landmarks visible in this panorama is the taller Fernsehturm tower.
