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 visited the Panoramapunkt 24th and 25th observatory floors after visiting the Communication-TV tower at Alexander Platz. Panoramapunkt was better, we enjoyed overwhelming overviews of the city in a quite nice autumn day. Don't visit it when it is a rainy day of course.

The view is good of course, but it's a pity about the bars that obstruct it. The old photographs of the Potsdamer Platz, and the accompanying text (in German and English) were most interesting, even quite moving. Directly opposite are the offices of Deutsche Bahn: Fascinating to look over and study the goings on in a modern office. Overall this... More

Enjoyed the view from the top - got some very good photos of Berlin. Was good to see where we had been previously all around on bikes. Fastest lift in Europe.

Great for 360 view of Berlin and especially Postdam. Even have a piece of 'the Wall' up there. Said to have the fastest lift in Europe.

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
