Be sure to mark 7 May 2017 on your calendar, because that is Berlin Highlights Day! From 10 am to 8 pm you can visit 13 attractions throughout Berlin. Potsdamer Platz is also included with two highlights of its own:
The Big Dalí Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz
The Berlin Dalí Museum at Potsdamer Platz is dedicated to Spanish artist Salvador Dalí and houses over 450 exhibits from his life and work – a diverse, permanent exhibition. Dalí was a universal artist of the modern period. He worked as painter, graphic artist, illustrator, sculptor, stage designer, poet, screenwriter and performing artist – and is considered one of the major representatives of Surrealism.
The Dalí exhibition in Berlin provides deep insight into the artist’s famous theme worlds of dreams and the unconscious with characteristic features like burning giraffes and melting clocks. Dalí in Berlin draws upon the artist’s comprehensive lifework of over 2,000 pieces from private collections. The exhibition is made up of a rotating display of drawings, lithographs, sculptures and much more.

The Breathtaking Panorama View of Berlin
The POTSDAMER PLATZ 1 at the northern tip of Potsdamer Platz boasts Europe’s fastest elevator! In just 20 seconds, it whisks visitors up 100 metres to Panorama Point (“Panoramapunkt”) in the 24th floor with an open-air observation deck, an exhibition and a café with rooftop terrace. Here guests can take in a breathtaking view of the city. The open-air exhibition is displayed on two floors. Leading all the way around POTSDAMER PLATZ 1, it recounts the history of Potsdamer Platz. The 360° glassed-in café with rooftop terrace tempts guests with a selection of specialty coffees and teas, snacks, fine cakes and a spectacular view. Since the rebuilding of Potsdamer Platz, Panoramapunkt has been one of its main attractions.
