Great breakfast! Easy to get through security and to the restaurant. It's great to come a little earlier and walk around at the top. The restaurant was very easy and pleasant. Food was delicious and way too much to be able to finish it all!

Staff very friendly. The breakfast is nicely presented and tasty. 1 less slice of ham for 1 yogurt pot and it would be perfect.

Great service and nice staff. Everything with a glamor effect. Well prepared for Corona. Waiting time in the normal range.

The tour guide was extremely nice and the tour is obviously nice. Berlin speaks for itself

really worth seeing. The actors really do their best to make you shudder.
