Television Tower

Hamburgs "Tele-Michel"

Outstanding! You can see him from every corner of the city: Hamburg's television tower, or as the inhabitants affectionately call it, the "Tele-Michel". The television tower is one of Hamburg's landmarks and today only serves as a radio tower.

With a height of almost 280 metres, the television tower in Hamburg is the tallest building. It was built between 1965 and 1968 in the classical reinforced concrete method and officially inaugurated after the German physicist Heinrich Rudolf Hertz as the "Heinrich Hertz Tower". Today, however, hardly anyone knows him under this name. Until 2001, the television tower was also open to the world as a magnet for visitors. As with its Berlin counterpart, the view of Hamburg's rooftops could be enjoyed both on the observation platform and in the mobile restaurant.

Closed, but not forever

Today, the television tower is under a preservation order and is part of the historic Hamburg. However, there are already far-reaching plans for its revival: by 2023, the television tower is to be made accessible to the public again. With its restaurant and viewing platform, it will then be in no way inferior to its Berlin counterpart and provide a breathtaking view over Hamburg.

By the way, you will have the most beautiful view of the television tower from Park Planten un Blomen.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Sternschanze & Karoviertel

The two districts around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt are always in motion. Here, it is colourful and lively, and it has become much fancier in the last few years. Still, the district in the borough of Altona has preserved much of its rough, leftist-alternative nonconformism.

Outstanding German civil engineering Alter Elbtunnel

When the old Elbe Tunnel, also called St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel, opened in 1911, it was a technical sensation. Today, it is a nostalgic and lovingly tended piece of Hamburg history – and has already celebrated its 100th anniversary.
