No other place offers such spectacular views of the city’s most famous landmarks and historic sites! The Brandenburg Gate, the Victory Column and Bellevue Palace are all just a stone’s throw away.The open-air exhibition “Views of Berlin” will show you how this historic site has been completely transformed again and again: from a quiet green to the pulsing heart of a major city, from the height of luxury to a field of rubble, from a no man’s land to the new centre of Berlin.An experience for all the senses – and the same goes for our PANORAMACAFÉ on the 24th floor and spectacular roof terrace on the 25th floor! « less

Visited a while ago whilst in Berlin. It had been recommended to us for its views, and they really are superb! Really enjoyed our time here, took some great pictures too :)

Compared to New York's viewing points (the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Center), this one is much lower. Still, the view is good, since Berlin is lower in general, so you can still see very far. Unlike New York, this panorama point also offers you a small exhibition. It depicts the surroundings of Potzdamer Platz before the war, just... More

My mother and I went to the Panoramapunkt attraction, because there were huge numbers of people queuing to go up the TV tower - even late at night. The Panoramapunkt had no queuing (except a wait while the staff stingily waited until they had enough people to cram the lift to nearly full capacity on the way up) , but... More

We chose this over the Television Tower and I am not sure we made the right decision. Fastest lift in Europe is a plus. Ridiculously over-priced cafe at the top is a negative. Good information boards right around the area tou can walk round at the top. Biggest downside to it is the fact that it does have some other... More

The most thrilling experience in an elevator....The whole idea of panoramapunkt is to check the fastest elvator in Europe - 24 floors (90m) for 20 seconds !!! Amazing... On the top you can also see the area from a terrace going around the building but that is not the main part of the attraction. Price is 6 EUR but it's... More

Out of all the viewpoints in Berlin this is the most accessible. No pre-booking needed like in the Reichstag. It was hard to find the entrance - I think its near the U2 U-Bahn entrance. They make a big thing about this being the fastest lift in Europe - whizzing you up to the 24th floor. It costs €6.50 or... More

Berlin seems to have no shortage of high vantage points and each offers a different perspective on the city (I also did the dome of the Reichstag building and the roof of the Berliner Dom, but not the TV tower in Alexanderplatz). The 20 s ride in the fastest lift in Europe gets you to the top very quickly, and... More

We travelled by the fastest elevator in Europe up to the open viewing platform from which you can see most of the city... The inside walls are covered with info panels with some very interesting info on the Berlin wall and overall pre- and post-war history of Berlin. Worth the trip, even though it was raining...

We went on a rainy afternoon so it may be more enjoyable when the weather is good. The view is nice, you won't spend a lot of time here.
