Lonely Planet review

With its giant Mercedes star spinning on its rooftop, the 103m-high Europa-Center was Berlin’s first 'skyscraper' at its 1965 opening. These days, the 20-storey shopping centre exudes charming retro flair and is packed with such quirky sights as the Lotus Fountain on the ground floor and the psychedelic Flow of Time Clock by Bernard Gitton in the basement.

You can also catch the lift to the 20th floor to enjoy the panorama or get an eyeful of pretty people and Berlin at the swish Puro Skylounge . It was built on the site of the Romanisches Cafe, a key hangout of 1920s glitterati and intellectuals.
