Highlights:Elegance in white

The "White Giant" is the nickname given to this elegantly curved skyscraper, which has long been a landmark of the City West area. Berlin's skyscraper combines fascinating architecture and breathtaking views. Motel One guests can enjoy one of the most beautiful rooftop terraces in the city, and companies such as Görg and WeWork occupy the prestigious offices, which are among the most exclusive addresses in this metropolis on the River Spree.

Location:Gate to City West

The area around the Bahnhof Zoo railway station is now one of the most successful modernisation projects in the capital – until well into the 1990s, the area was considered a problem zone. The UPPER WEST building, located directly on Breitscheidplatz, marks the start of the Kurfürstendamm, which is one of the most popular shopping boulevards in Germany.
