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!

The main claim to fame is the amazingly fast lift - you hardly feel the you are going up so fast and quietly. The view is not as extensive as that from the TV Tower, but, being lower, seems more immediate. Again, a good place...More

What a view, indeed!! 90m up into the Berlin skyline and the whole of the city laid out in front of you! If that’s not enough, the ascent to the viewing deck, floor 24, on the fastest lift in Europe takes 20 seconds! Anyway, the...More

This attraction includes a ride in the fastest elevator in Europe, very smooth and you don't notice how quickly you are travelling upwards! Once at the top, the city is spread out below, only a tiny piece being obscured by a nearby tower block. Excellent...More

We only visited here because we had a good discount offered with the Berlin Welcome Card. The lift to the top is claimed to be Europe's fastest, or something like that. There's a further flight of stairs to take once at the top, to get...More

This is a great place to view the city from above. There are 2 viewing floors, it's worth going round both of them. And the fastest lift in Europe is incredible - you barely feel like you are moving.

We had planned to go up the Berlin TV Tower to get an unobstructed view of the city, but the lines were quite long, and we didn't want to wait that long. Our pension manager suggested that we try the Panoramapunkt as an alternative, which...More

Great views from the top of this building. There is some writing about the history of the Potsdamer platz here which is really interesting. The ride in the fastest lift in Europe is awesome, you don't really even feel it.

We have been here before. Fast lift. Good views - better if some other buildings were knocked down. You can walk around two levels and snap away. Café there too. Near Potsdamer Platz. Well worth it if in area.

I visited Panoramapunkt because I wanted to another enjoy the views of Berlin from the viewing deck of another high building. I had heard that apart from seeing the views/sights of Berlin, the observation deck has written information and pictures explaining a bit about Berlin's...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
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
