Step into the fastest elevator in Europe to begin your journey through the eventful history of one of the world's most significant and popular squares.In just 20 seconds you will be whisked up to the 24th floor, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Berlin. 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!

The Panoramapunkt is a great way to end your day in Berlin. It's nice to see the sites you've visited from above and to enjoy some fresh air at the same time. Go when the weather is clear for the best view. Again a lot of information about the Wall, but that's not why you should go here.

It's a great alternative for the crowded TV tower at the Alexanderplatz. This panorama at the Potzdamer platz has 2 viewing floors, with on 1 floor an exhibition of the history of Potzdamer platz. Having to go up with the fastest elevator is a bonus and the price of €6.5 is quite fair. The biggest letdown is the fence around... More

It sounds very nice when you read the info but when going on the "fastest elevator in Europe" its no as impressive. The view from the top is nice but the metal fence is a bit disturbing. overall not a most!

The exhibition before going up to the viewing platform was very interesting and well worth taking time to read thoroughly. But I have to admit that we weren't that impressed by the actual view - we much preferred the one from the dome of the Berliner Dom, which we did later in the week.

The fastest elevator - brings you up 100 meters in 40 seconds. Nice view of the city. Bear in mind that the observatory is open to the winds, so dress well!

Only found this accidentally, after visiting Sony Centre. Only €6.50 each. Clear day so great views with a pit stop for a beer in the cafe. Lovely sights to see, most noted on plaques around the walls.

With 5€ admission price it seemed the much more preferable alternative to the TV-tower at Alexanderplatz, which is supposedly hell to queue at, expensive, with the glass reflecting off pictures. Plus if you're on the tower, you can't get it in pictures, obviously, and since it's the one trademark of the Berlin skyline... The panorama point is basically a narrow... More

The charming lift assistant explaining the quickest lift in Europe together with the breath-taking view all over Berlin were the positive aspects, the misty, cloudy day with icy winds were the negative aspect. Helpful photos describing the different asights. Don't forget warm clothing before going up !

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
