When you think about the Berlin skyline, the image that most comes to mind is Brandenburg Tor. And while the neoclassical gate in the center of town is certainly impressive, Berlin’s landscape offers much to be admired. Thankfully there are plenty of options to get a great view. The Fernseturm, or TV Tower, is one of the city’s most recognized landmarks, jettisoning into the skyline where you can see it from almost every location in town. That tall tower also offers a great view; an elevator brings you 207 meters high to find a revolving restaurant and viewing gallery. The glass roof of the Reichstag, the home of the German Parliament, also offers an impressive view from its West Berlin home; entrance is free, but advance registration is required. And for a bit of a thrill, take Europe’s speediest elevator to the 24th floor panoramic observation deck, Panoramapunkt, in Potsdamer Platz’s Kollhoff Tower.
