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!

Panoramapunkt is a great place to stop. The price is a little more reasonable than the Fernsehturm. The staff is friendly and helpful. The elevator is super fast, and the area at the top provides great views. We really liked the signs pointing out what everything was. You're also right in Potsdamer Platz which is a fun modern area of... More

With the fastest elevator in Europe you go to a hight of 100m for an impressive view of Berlin. And with a cost of only 6euro it is a lot cheaper then the Fernsehturm

There was no queue to get in and the elevator was operated by an attendant. The viewpoints where covered in mental grating, so no unobstructed views. There were several display panels covering the destruction of Potsdamer Platz during the war, the building of the dividing wall and the some of the early reconstruction. Didn't try to visit the TV tower,... More

Can be entered relatively fast which is an advantage to spending time queuing to TV tower. The view however is not much better that that from Reichstag dome which is free and uncovered by an higher buildings in the neighbourhood (the case of Panoramapunkt). Additionally Reichstag offer geat educational advantage via automaic, very well prepared and interesting. Overall - recommended... More

I am sure the views from the TV tower are great but it is on the far side of the city and more expensive. The Panoramapunkt is near the Reichtag and Brandenburg gate which makes the views interesting at 6.5 euros

Firstly we thought it was for free, but then we saw it costs 6 € per person, but we still decided to go and we don't regret it. View was nice, everything was so clear and we saw where every must-see object was. Worth visiting. After that we decided we wouldn't go to the TV Tower.

The views from the look out platform are spectacular being one of the tallest buildings in Berlin and the cafe had some great cakes as well. Well worth the money.

Located at the Potsdamer Platz, this place gives you a perfect view over all of Berlin, with signs telling you what you can see from that view point. And afterward you can have a relaxing drink at the Panorama Cafe, enjoying the views through the huge window panes.

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.
