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!

Located in Potsdamer Platz next to the sony centre this is the best viewing platform we visited. Reasonably priced (think about 6 euros) and you go in a very fast elevator to the level where the coffee shop and exhibition are. Exhibition is really informative about the area and everything that you can see and there are some good views... More

Disappointed with this as the cafe and exhibition area were closed off for a private function. There was no warning of this. Had there been we wouldn't have gone.

Early in the morning, when they just opened, we only had to wait for ten minutes before riding the lift up. The view is stunning. Panoramapunkt is not that tall, but you still get a good view of Berlin. With the student discount you only pay five euros, which I think is acceptable.

Going to the top of this building gives not only a fantastic view over all of Berlin, but also provides a wonderful history of Potsdamer Platz, which has had a remarkable history indeed. I believe it is a must see to get a grasp of divided Berlin. The views are best from the highest level, but the panels on the... More

I generally am unimpressed by going to the top of tall buildings to see the view. And this building is not even very tall (24 floors?). I was unimpressed by their "fastest elevator in Europe" claim - it was very quick (and very cramped) but so what. But the view from the top (and the explanations of what we were... More

If you prefer high places, fast elevator and view over the Berlin, Panoramapunkt is your choice. It was very pleasant surprise. A lot of historical information was available and the view was amazing. Big positive surprise.

Great views with a graphical history of Potsdamer Platz Square (a big target for the RAF). And the lift is really fast. well worth a visit.

excellent vantage point to admire Berlins splendour in the afternoon when the sun shines eastward. windowless design guarantees unobstructed view that is best for photographers. ample photos in its exhibition recount on the tale of potsdamer plaTX from its heyday in the twenties , to cold war wasteland to present day megabuilding complex. definitely recommend if the day is sunny....

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.
