Berliner Fernsehturm

The Berliner Fernsehturm is one of the narrowest buildings I have ever seen. Close to the Alexanderplatz it dominates the Berlin Skyline.

The Fernsehturm (English: Berlin TV Tower) is a television tower in central Berlin, Germany.

Close to Alexanderplatz in Berlin-Mitte, the tower was constructed between 1965 and 1969 by the administration of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). It was intended as a symbol of Berlin, which it remains today, as it is easily visible throughout the central and some suburban districts of Berlin. With its height of 368 metres, it is the tallest structure in Germany, and the second tallest structure in the European Union (by a half-metre).

The tower has become one of the most prominent symbols of the country and is often in the establishing shot of films set in Berlin. Due to its location near Alexanderplatz, it is occasionally called Alex Tower. (bron: Wikipedia)
