This is a lovely poster styled design which really catches the eye, something which seems to be a common situation with many of the better poster like issues, something which the Berlin publishers seem to excel at.

Large sized postcard which shows part of the painted wall along the East Side Gallery. The Brandenburg Gate and the word BERLIN on the right side of this postcard are printed in gold ink (on the first page of TV Tower postcards there is another of these issues which depicts the TV Tower on its own)

Ref: EV 788-1

This postcard and the one depicted below are exclusive to the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) gift shop which can be accessed without paying the entrance fee for the Tower itself (but you need to ask at the door to just visit the shop). These two postcards were a real find and are superb. I assume this is a cartoon character related to the tower, but I do not know where else this character appears (unless it is unique to these postcards)

I had to have this one as soon as I saw it. What a cracking card and it fits into two of my favourite themes; Novelty and Television. It also makes a great souvenir of my visit to the TV Tower.

This side gives details of how of how to construct your card tower (not difficult really).

I get a distinct Japanese feel from this design, but it might just be that this is a large rising sun and not a reference to the Japanese… but check out the card below!

There is a definite Japanese theme going on here what with the rising sun emblem. I’ve no real idea why its here though, I just liked the card.

I almost missed this one. I picked up a load of cards in a shop and was at the counter waiting for my cards to be added up and I looked out the window and saw this on a rack outside. I nipped outside and added it to my selection.

What can I say about this design? It is without a doubt the weirdest TV Tower related postcard I came across. I was also genuinely surprised to find a design which has Hitler’s head on it, especially with Stalin and President Kennedy as well! I think I would have bought this card even if the TV Tower had not been included, but I am glad that it was.

What I love about Berlin postcard hunting is that you can find some truly unusual and unique designs. Who would have expected to find a Batman themed card like this one!

No artist named and this card has no reference number, but I did like the very colourful image. It is by the same company as the two postcards illustrated above, but it has a different reverse side.

This is a reproduction of a postcard from the DDR and the 1970’s. I bought this one in the gift shop of the DDR Museum. Obviously, this is a map postcard design in the main, but the TV Tower does make an appearance. Another cracking postcard from what is a great-little-museum.

There was a time in the 1990’s when postcards with thick white boarders around photographs was extremely popular and became quite a trend. This is not really the case anymore and card publishers have gone back to thin boarders or no boarders at all (they call it ‘Full Bleed’). This is a rare example of a remaining type in Berlin.
