Palace at the TV Tower


This is the sign in front of Berlin's main convention center. Somehow the word palace makes it seem fancy. The funkturm is the TV tower - but not that funny-looking space needle thing in the East. The West had its own TV tower back in the separated days - it looks sort of like a mini Eiffel Tower. Now it serves mainly as a restaurant and observation deck.

I like that type of advertisement, it seems to be very big.

on doit avoir une superbe vue du haut de cette tour.

Tis a sign that will certainly garner a lot of attention - which is what one wants when advertising something.

Nicely-composed shot!

I guess there are a few uses of "Palace" in the U.S. but for the most part you are right, it would sound funny here.
