KREUZBERGED BERLIN

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

WHO´S THE BIRTHDAY KID or HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERLIN´S FERNSEHTURM

It seems that all that Re-Unification Day celebrations made us forget another very important event that took place on October 3: on that day in 1969 Berlin´s most recognisable symbol, its mark par excellence, the East Berlin Fernsehturm opened for business.

The ceremony was attended by all top SED (Socialist Unity Party of Germany) officials, with Erich Honecker, the party´s leader, as the guest of honour.

Below you will find a collection of private photos made during the Fernsehturm´s construction by Mr Klaus Liesack, who was one of the tower´s builders, mixed with press photos issued to the public.
