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

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 fastest of Europe although I think the Shard of London is what quick. Oh, yes and beautiful panoramic views.

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.

We went here instead of the TV tower due to the recommendations on this site. And while we haven't been at the TV tower, so can't compare the views, on its own the Panoramapunkt was quite disappointing: the views are blocked by large, thick, ugly columns of concrete; and half of the "360 panorama" can only be seen from within...

You go up an extremely fast elevator to a great viewing experience. 380 degree view of the entire city with lots of panels explaining what you are looking at. There is also a number of large panels with pictures telling the story of the Potsdammer platz. Definitely worth you while and Euros to go there.

Don't bother with the long lines of the TV tower, this is where the best view can be had ( it is also cheaper and open air). We spent nearly two hours taking in the views from there observation decks and having a snack at their cafe. It takes only 20 seconds to reach the 24th floor and the crowds... More
