The old and new centre of Berlin, combined into a vibrant collage of styles and architectures. Well worth visiting, especially the Film Museum.

If you want to have some night fun, this is the place to be, watch a movie, have some glasses of beer or eat in the best restaurants, if you are in day time, it will be really hard to recognize that this place can really be so lively in the dark

Pretty typical plaza for a large European city except that the modern style that is used. Plenty of shopping, eating and people watching an definitely worth a visit.

It's been one of our favorite sites of modern Berlin - situated in historical area. Lights, music, restaurants & cafes with the different kitchens; always overcrouded but not bothering 😊. Will find interests for every age. Sony Center. Cinema Museum. Shopping. Long story short - highly recommended 👍

Visiting Berlin, anyone think of the Brandenburg Gate, the Parliament, Unter den Linden. Then, arriving at Potsdamer Platz, the surprise is enormous. There is possible to see how Germany has been able to mix modernity with art, business with quality of life. A unique experience

Much like the city was artificially split in two, it was artificially put back together again, creating new city centres where there was only death strip before. It feels slightly out of place and disconnected, but it is still fascinating. Such a completely constructed new centre is something quite unusual after all.

From the U bahn station you could be fooled to think this area is just a business district but around the corner everything comes to life! It wasn't until I was back in the area for an evening show that I realized just how many restaurants, shopping arcades, theaters there were in the area. Very modern, cutting edge architecture with...

Potsdamer Platz is just one of those places you have to visit if you are 'doing' Berlin and with its wonderfully central station, how can you not. Superb buildings and great places to shop!

We went by subway to stop off in this area to see the New Berlin. Much more sophistication and architecture to see. Cool buildings with lots of glass and good people watching.

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.
