Whenever I go to a city with an accessible TV tower I always try and go up. These bastions of the white heat of technology across the world are largely redundant these days but serve as a great way to see a city.

They can also be a bit grotty with the view being the only good thing - think expensive drinks or tacky gifts

What a revelation to fond a reasonably priced, clean and stylish restaurant up in the TV Tower in Brasilia. Offering a wonderful view up the Monumental Axis, with Congress in the far distance.

You can’t get any higher than this up the tower (which may not be a bad thing as it looks a bit rickety and exposed!)

Great staff, an amazing view and a great pitstop as you explore

Located by the Market and not far from the fountains. (Not to be confused with the digital TV tower on the other side of the lake.

The tower is a popular attraction for many as you can visit the restaurant which is partway up the tower or take the elevator to the observation deck further up the tower at a height of 72 metres . It is 224 metres high. There is no charge but a Passport is required as proof of Identity to gain access

There were always queues when we visited and not much cover from the hot sun.

To me, the TV Tower looks smoll, and that it is the 4th tallest structure in giant Brazil seems bizarre. I do not think Brasilia is a successful city, but some buildings are nice - and all can be seen from the tower. What's more, the entire environment - arts and crafts market, I love Brasilia letters, fountain, park - is great and well worth the visit. I especially recommend the crafts market.

It said on all websites, Google Maps etc. that the tower is open, on workdays, from 12 noon. It was clearly visible from my hotel window though that it already opened at 9 or 10am, and so I went on a Thursday at 10. It was open, and I find amazing that this is free - I only know parallels in Japan and Finland, otherwise such elevators get charged.

What's more, very friendly staff - security, admissions, elevator. Great! Yes, you need your passport, but a digital copy is fortunately enough (not the case eg for money exchange).

The view is great, and well worth the effort. Seeing that there isn't that much to do in the city, the tower and its environs are a great visit.

Admission is free, but entrance requires identification verification. If you don’t have a Brazilian ID use your passport. Look at a map of the city before going to get the most out of your visit. The viewing platform gives a terrific viewpoint from which one can easily see the plan, especially the layout of the monumental axis and some of the most important edifices along it. Bring binoculars if you have them. The scale of the city is huge, so some of the major sites will be off in the distance. This is a good first stop before exploring the architectural sites.

It can be difficult to get an overview of Brasília, but the TV tower on the Eixo Monumental is a good opportunity. There is a panorma platform some 70 meters above the ground, with a nice view towards the Parliament and a part of Asa Norte. The restaurant Mezanino at the mezanine also has a nice view, an Athos Bulcão artwork and some great food.

My hotel is close to the Televsion Tower and I first observed it from the rooftop during the daytime. When I came back upstairs to see the sunset the tower was beauitfully illuminated. Supposedly the 4th tallest building in Brasilia, it's a readily identified landmark that helps orient a visitor.

I was disappointed that the Torre de Televisao is still closed for (seemingly eternal) repairs. Still worth the visit, however, to take photos of the tower, the I Love Brasilia sign, and visit the nearby outdoor weekend market. Not a necessarily beautiful structure like so many others along the monumental axis, but still a significant landmark and important element of the Plano Piloto

It doesn't appear that any repairs have been done nor are they in the process of making any repairs. It's sad, but the TV Tower looks like it's been closed for decades. Thus, who knows when, or if, it will reopen.

Brasilia’s climate is hard on the buildings, including the tv tower. Supposedly offering magnificent views over Brasilia, it was closed for repairs when I got there. Instead walked around the small stalls and shops at the foot of the tower, offering a very wide range of - often handmade- articles such as clothing, jewellery, furniture and toys. And food, of course.

It is one of the symbols of capital city Brasilia. It is worth seeing the 360 degree view of the capital, but it's just about it. With free entrance, there is a lift that takes you to a platform to see the views of the city. Close to the tower (100 meters), there is an artisan's fair that complements your visit (worth a visit) and also the city park (about 500 meters).
