  • The panoramic point at Potsdamer Platz is located in 100 m height. From here you can see almost all architectural highlights of Berlin with the naked eye, such as the victory column, Bellevue Palace and the Brandenburg Gate. During the tour on the platform, you can get an overview about the recent history of Berlin's photo documents. Noteworthy: The elevator is only 20 seconds almost all the way to the top of the Tower (fastest elevator in Europe).

  • Ultra rising fast until at the top and it bit discovering the city in 360'. A bit of history on the walls and you have a nice attraction.

  • Deliberating between a 3 and a 4, as quite a nice hour but not worth going out of your way for. Not particularly well signposted from Potsdamer Platz subway but only a few hundred metres, if that. Lif...  more »

  • 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.
  • Great ! You can see berlin
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great views over Berlin, well worth the 6.50 EUR fee. Good selection of wine and beer in the cafe too.
