Berlin is awesome. The city is colorful, interesting, exciting and has something to offer everyone. In this post, I will show you where are the best views of the city.
#1 ParkInn Hotel
You go to the hotel, get in the elevators and go up to the 37th floor. You follow the signs and you’ll arrive at the panoramic site. From there you can enjoy magnificent views over Berlin. You can see the Berlin Dome, the TV tower.
Surely in many blogs, you will find recommendations for boarding in the TV Tower if you want to see the city from above. The TV Tower is the tallest building in Berlin. This, however, will cost you 11 euros, while embarking on the panoramic site of ParkInn hotel costs only 4 euros and has views as well as a view of the TV Tower. So, it’s a win-win.
Tip: Go at sunset and enjoy the view waiting for the highlighted city lights. I’ve stayed there for more than an hour, I was freezing, but it was totally worth it.
#2 Victoria Park
It’s a quiet and nice park in the locality of Kreuzberg. The nearest U-Bahn station is Platz der Luftbrücke. Take a walk in the park and go to the top of the hill where is the Prussian National Monument for the Liberation Wars. From there you’ll have an overlook of the whole city in every direction.
#3 Berlin Victory Column
The Victory Column is a monument in Berlin. Designed by Heinrich Strack to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War. The entire column, including the sculpture, is 67 meters tall. Get a ticket and climb to the top. It cost 3 euros. In the vicinity, you’ll see the Tiergarten (the most popular inner-city park) and the main streets of the city.
Teufelsberg (Devil’s Mountain) is a hill in the Grunewald locality. It rises about 80 meters above the surrounding Teltow plateau and 120 meters above the sea level. From there you will have a nice view of the city. On the top, there is also an abandoned NSA field station. I didn’t have time to visit it, but surely next time I will.
#5 The French Cathedral
Located in the heart of the city, at Gendarmenmarkt, the French Cathedral is a 70 meters tower. The panoramic view from the top of the cathedral is a must-see. From the top, you can see the whole Gendarmenmarkt with the concert hall, the Reichstag building, the TV Tower, the Berlin Cathedral. There is no doubt that this is definitely one of the best views of Berlin. To get to the panoramic view you’ve got to climb 254 steps.
The entrance fee is 3 euros.
#6 Weekend Club
This club is located in the heart of Alexander Platz on the twelfth, fifteenth, and rooftop terrace floors of the Haus Des Reisen’s building. From the windows, the club offers great views of the square below. The club plays techno music and house.
#7 The Circus Hotel rooftop
From The Circus Hotel rooftop, there is a great view of the other rooftops of the city, the TV Tower, the Berlin Dome, etc.
On the rooftop, you will find The Circus Honesty Bar where you can enjoy watching the sunset over the vibrant city with a drink in hand.
Or, you can start your morning with a yoga session. The yoga classes are available at The Circus Hotel rooftop, Monday & Thursday at 9 am.
Enjoy the views of Berlin!

Looking for a place where to stay in Berlin city center? I recommend the Generator Hostel in Berlin Mitte and The Circus Hostel (some of the best hostels in Berlin). Both hostels locations are perfect, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable, they are budget-friendly and the staff is awesome.
