The tower was built by a number of different architects; Fritz Dieter, Günter Franke and Werner Ahrendt.

The sphere, which is based about half way up the tower is a leisure area for the general public, with a visitor platform and a revolving restaurant. The visitor platform, also known as panoramic floor, is at the height of 203 metres, allowing visitors to see up a distance 42 kilometers on a clear day. The restaurant Telecafe, rotates once every 30 minutes, allowing diners to have a 360-degree view of the city of Berlin. The panoramic floor is situated below the restaurant.
