    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...  more »

    The entrance is located in the red brick Building of Daimler Chrysler on the sidewalk in front of the Sony Center.apres have paid €7,50 per person, you can access the elevator where an elevator takes you directly to the 24th floor in 10 seconds (20 seconds by counting the opening and closing of the doors. This quick trip is an extreme sweet (we don't see anything). There at the top a nice panoramic view as well as the explanatory tables on Berlin.Une cafeteria is also present.

    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...  more »

  • Excellent view of Berlin in this skyscraper roof tiptop particularly of the Sony Center and surrounding Potsdam Platz area. There are two levels for your viewing experience and a cafe at the top. The elevator ride up costs 7,50€ which is a bit steep and is cash only
  • Fantastic views from both terraces. The family ticket cost €17.50. There was no queues and the staff were really friendly and spoke perfect English. Coffee was a little pricey but worth it.
  • The rooftop deck of the Kollhoff tower at Potsdamer Platz is a nice alternative to the Hi-Flyer as it’s less weather dependent and much cheaper, and still provides an equally great view over all of Berlin. The price is 6,50 EUR. There is also a cafe up there. Pros: The most central view of Berlin. Cons: It’s at the much-hated Potsdamer Platz.
  • An quick and easy way to get a nice view! Not very very tall but you see everything. With the fastest elevator in Europe, 1 to 24 was less than 30 seconds, good experience.
  • The metal fence spoils the whole experience....I was very disappointed. otherwise the view is stunning...like a five star prison....However, the story of the Wall is told very well on boards with pictures. Very engaging.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
