  • With a tip of my in-laws, have we come to this sight and ran spontaneously there. Without the queues and considerably cheaper than on the famous TV Tower we have can enjoy a mega views over Berlin. The elevator ride was quickly over. Two panoramic floors, Berlin can be seen from above. Despite some clouds and some drizzle, we had a clear view. I can recommend it only each, come here.

  • Well organised, great views, lift amazingly fast and the cafe/bar is very pleasant. Much better than the Fernsehturm (TV tower). Don't forget to look up at the building itself from outside. The brass ...  more »
  • No crowds enjoy a panoramic view of Berlin? Here it goes. We wanted for the 3rd time on the TV Tower. Then I found the Pan point in the Internet and immediately booked the tickets online. Worked excellent. And the views spectacular. As a family very we liked.

  • 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.
