  • View was wonderful. Exposition was nice and informative. The poor service at the cafe destroyed the entire experience.
  • The view from Paborama Punkt was Ok in January. It is very different from Potsdamerplatz and you discover which building has garden on the rooftop. Café is often crowded, the prices were fair. The café closed after 17h. We were the last to leave the Panorama at 18h
  • Great views of the city from the top viewing platform which is worth the cost to take the lift to the top. Cafe has a limited savoury selection, but a very tempting cakes and sweet tarts. Better for a coffee and sweet treat rather than lunch.
  • Great view, good cakes. Below average hot chocolate. Also, really chill, tasteful music 👍
  • Excellent view over the city. Punctual service.
