Park Inn Panorama Terrasse

Museumsinsel & Alexanderplatz

For sweeping city views at eye level with the Fernsehturm (TV Tower), head up to the rooftop Panorama Terrasse, the open-air lounge of the Park Inn Hotel, some 150m above Alexanderplatz. Grab a sunlounger and relax with a cold beer or a glass of bubbly.

If you're lucky, you might even get to look on as gutsy base-flyers prepare to leap off the edge of the building in a controlled fall using a special winch system usually used by stuntpeople.
