Flights in Air Service Berlin's balloon depart every 15 minutes in good weather, meaning riders can soar high above the city at any time of day and get amazing photographs of the sights around the city. Actually a giant helium balloon, it's a fun and innovative way to see Berlin from a unique angle. The balloon is very well situated to see many of the German capital's most iconic landmarks from above.
Seeing the greatest sights of Berlin
There are a number of great destinations where guests can get superb views of the city on a trip to Berlin.

The open-air observation deck there is excellent for seeing the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and other top landmarks.
