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! Opening times : winter viewing platform 10am - 6pm café 11am - 5pm summer viewing platform 10am - 8pm café 11am - 7pm
Useful Information: Stairs / elevator

It's worth checking how hazy it is before heading to the top of this office block as I've been twice now and the second visit was so much more spectacular with clear skies. The views are stunning and gives you an idea just how sprawling Berlin is. The DB HQ blocks out some of the sights towards the Tiergarten but the rest is well worth it. There is a cafe at the top though I've not tried it. Sometimes there are queues but they seem to move quite quickly.

We stopped off here on a whim while on a bus tour around berlin. The weather was beautiful and we didn't have to que to get in. It was a really great experience with interesting information all around the viewing point in English. There was also really interesting photos alongside which we really enjoyed. The view was great although it's a shame it's surrounded by fencing so it's not as good as it could be but nevertheless we thought it was good value and are glad we did it. Would recommend it if you are in the area or passing through.

Visited in June 2013.

Low-cost and queue-avoiding alternative for the Fernsehturm on Alexanderplatz.

On your way to the elevator : Interesting video about the different looks of Potsdamer Platz since 1920.

But the main reason for your visit - the view - is not great : towards the most interesting parts of the town (north and east of the tower) it is partly blocked by the DB-skyscraper and by the building itself.

Deceptive publicity towards BerlinWelcomeCard holders : the 25% reduction advertised applies only on a package deal of 8,00€ (entrance fee + useless leaflet), not on the basic entrance fee of 5,50€.

Would really not recommend this place.

As a low-cost alternative to Fernsehturm, the Siegessaüle - even if it's much lower - is probably a better bet... since the view is not blocked by anything. But it has 270 steps and no elevator...

Paid ?5.50 entry, didnt actually spend much time on the viewing platform. The cafe had great looking cakes but not much in terms of food. It was a bit hard to find the building though!

The viewpoint offers a great view of the city and informative boards of the Potsdamplatz history. It is good value for money, especially on a nice day. Also worth the price of the admission is the lift operator who takes his job VERY seriously and delivers the statistics of the lift in an unintentionally hilarious, robotic manner.
