A completely modern and vast square/quarter which bears very little resemblance or trace of its history. It was a historical gate to the city from Potsdam, housed hotels and department stores in the 1920's-30's, was completely devastated by the end of the Second World War and the Berlin Wall then cut through the Platz, meaning that it lay in no-man's...

It is one of the places with modern architectures in Berlin. Worth a visit as you you can still find the small piece of Berlin Wall. There are shopping malls and shops where you can hangout with friends and family. Some times during weekend there is event host.

Rebuild with several hotels, restaurants and atractions, visited several times during my stay. Highlights are the Sony Center and the film and TV museum, the remainings of the Esplanade Hotel and the rooftop viewpoint served by a fast elevator.

Walked out to this attraction only to find a large undercover shopping area. What is the attraction? There really is nothing to see.

Very modern and a totally different look to Berlin with all the modernization. This is supposed to be an area that is totally self contained with food, shopping and living all in one area. Interesting concept if you like to be crowded or city dweller

Interesting and historical . You feel the sense of the Cold War but at the same time a sense of relief that you are free to wander around what was once a no go area . Lots of small cafes and restaurants. Fascinating place.

When you come out of the subway station with a group the Potsdamer Platz is an ideal meeting place. Lots of people, just be careful of the cyclists - they don't give a damn about pedestrians. Stay out of their way.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
