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!

I found the price of €6 very reasonable, no wait for the lift and very good views from the top, although the bars encasing the viewing platforms are somewhat in the way if you want to take pictures. If you can manage to get a window seat in the cafe then you can get unobstructed views. Cafe's a bit pricey,... More

It's a quick ride up to the Panoramapunkt, and it's an interesting viewpoint. Although as a viewing platform it's not as impressive in terms of height and location as the TV tower at Alexanderplatz, it's definitely worth coming up here, as it feels somehow less obviously touristic and has some interesting information placards relating the history of Potsdamer Platz, which...

Much cheaper than going to the tv tower, I believe it was only six euro when I went, plus you can actually see the tv tower from here! Unfortunately it was a pretty gloomy week when I visited Berlin, but I'm sure that the views from panoramapunkt are amazing on a clear day. The building is close enough that you... More

I thought the price was a bargain-we had no wait for tickets or the elevator. It was a cold dreary day but the view was great and the cafe was a nice warm spot where we continued to enjoy the panorama. Definitely recommend.

A bit overpriced, even for the fastest elevator in whole Europe. We managed to avoid long queues, and the view was really lovely. They've got two levels, and you can see major attractions of Berlin from atop. Walls are decorated with interesting historical pictures.

Turned up and bought a ticket for 6.50 Euro's. The fastest lift in Europe takes you to the 24th floor, where there is a cafe, in 20 seconds! You can then walk up a floor to see the same views but higher! Enjoy :)

A great place to view many of the sights you might see from the street. It was not a planned stop but worth the cost of the elevator, even on a misty, foggy day. No wait for the elevator.

The elevator up is great. *TIP* Google the time the sun sets, that is the best time to visit- You can see everything in the day light, watch the sun set and then see all of the lights come out. -only downfall was the cafe which serves terrible coffee

We just happened across this and thought for €6.50 we'd have a look. The cafe is lovely, all of the seats beside windows with views over the city. We went up in the dark is looking out of the rooftop platform was brilliant, the views over Berlin beautiful. Really peaceful too. Cafe and toilets very clean. Highly recommended.

We queued for over half an hour to get a ticket as, despite being one of Berlin's major attractions, there was only one person on the desk. By the time we got a ticket we were told that we could not go up for another two and a half hours by which time it was dark. Berlin by night looked... More

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.
