Potsdamer Platz is an important square in the Mitte district of Berlin, close to the south-east corner of Großer Tiergarten park. It is named after the city of Potsdam, 25 km (16 miles) to the south-west. At Potsdamer Platz used to be the Potsdam Gate, where the old road from Potsdam passed through the city wall of Berlin. History goos... More

Berlin was largely destroyed during the last stages of the war, and Potsdamer Platz was in complete ruin. Go to the top of the brick (flatiron) building and there you will find a protected, panoramic walk around, with guides to the view, and with photos that show the building of the modern Potsdamer Platz. Now a thriving center again, it... More

Very impressive construction (Sony centre). Great place for lunch stop. Nice restaurants around, a bit pricy for my taste. A small piece of the Berlin Wall is just at one of the u-bahn exits but unfortunately is full of chewing gums!! Just insane how some people don't respect anything.

We were staying at the Hideaways Club apartment at 1 Bellevuestr, Potsdamer Platz and to see it all happening around us from the apartment, the Sony Center, the excitement of the place is infectious. Tourists from all over the world are brought to this point to experience a point in time of the last 70 years. Many city tour buses... More

The newly renovated Potsdamer Platz stands tall above this city, uniting what were once East and West Berlin. This little city within a city has S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations that connect it to Charlottenburg in the west and Alexander Platz in the East. The Sony Center, the film museum, Brandenburger Tor and the Berlin Wall exhibits are all within walking... More

Potsdamerplatz was the point at which the divided sections of Berlin met. It was a wasteland until reunification so the architecture is highly symbolic. The elements of wall and the info display outside the station are worth a look. The Sony Centre is interesting to visit but there isn't much there to see and do. The Arkaden shopping mall is... More

One of the more interesting places of Berlin, I found this place full of interesting architecture and many roads! The history behind the square is dark, and it is great that they have completely rebuilt this place from scratch, and left two long lines and a few remaining sections of the Berlin wall to show its history at the site....
