Great for a view of the city. A little 'smoggy' the day we went up, but enjoyed our time here. Didn't partake in the food or drink. Wait wasn't too bad, we were there midweek. Only a short line to get up and down.

From here you can start to any direction of Berlin city by walking, tram, ubahn, bus. Is not a beautiful platz but is very crowded and has many shops for the tourists. If you are in berlin at least one day you have to be here and take a walk around.

Its one of the best sites to have a walk , a snack or go shopping in a group of shops including Primark & C&A to a different of stores at different malls around. The place is easily accessed by metro but needs to be in good weather.
