Owner description: 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!

Much less touristy than the TV Tower with uninterrupted views over Berlin. Cafe is understated and warm after being outside on the viewing platforms. No queues when we visited and very few people around. Wear something warm if visiting in winter!

As mentioned by others, main viewing area is outdoors with safety bars that do effect the view, rather than being glassed in. However cafe at one end is glassed in with more unrestricted views. Did not get to TV tower so can't compare unfortunately. Lindenbrau Bar in nearby Sony Centre well worth a visit for good beer and food.

The Kollhof Tower, a lift whisks you up to the 360 degree observation floor were you can get an all round view of the city from Potsdamer Platz. It's is only €6.50 each as opposed to €23.50 at the TV Tower in Alexander Platz which offers the same thing!!!!!

The viewing platform is at the top of one of the iconic buildings on Berlin's Potsdamerplatz. It offers great views of the city from on high and is an alternative to the queues at the TV Tower (but doesn't offer quite the same views). It also offers superb views of people working in the tower next door! It can get... More

The lift ride is too short to offer what other tall buildings (the shard, top of the rock) do, which is videos/excitement in the elevator. The viewing deck is tiny and cramped, with some good information, but easily blocked when people - quite reasonably - stop to read. The staff were unhelpful when we asked for directions to our next... More

I liked this place, it had some interesting old photographs of the area you looked down on. The cafe was hidden a little but enjoyed my time there, it was a bit quiet and that appealed to me at that time.

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.
