One highlight of the experience in the Humboldt Box is the impressive 360-degree panoramic views from 22 meters high. Enjoy a view of the Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island, Unter den Linden, and of course the palace grounds.

While away an afternoon on the viewing terrace at the historic café and restaurant "Humboldt Terrace" and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and a slice of homemade cake (included in the price, offers subject to daily specials, alcoholic drinks not included).
