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!

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....

You get a fantastic 360° view of Berlin and a ride in a very fast elevator. Fantastic value for money, much cheaper than the TV tower and less queues. Easy to find in the Potsdamer Platz.

Best view over Berlin without any windows (very good for photograhpy). After that, you can relax in the Panoramapunkt, alos with the good view from inside.

If you're in Berlin and want to see the city from above, Panoramapunkt is a really good option. It's not as tall as the Alexanderplatz Tower (Fernsehturm) but it certainly does make up for it in other ways: 1. You can get good shots of the Alexanderplatz Tower from Panoramapunkt 2. There's no line-up to go up and it only... More

A great alternative to the queues of the TV tower. No queues. The fastest elevator in Europe isn't up to much hype but the view is perfect.

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.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
