We didn't spot anything that made us want to linger. There was a lot of traffic on the roads and none of the buildings attracted us enough to want to go inside.

What makes Potsdamer Platz so fascinating to me is to contrast what is there now with what the area was like at the time the wall fell. Now vs. then is like comparing two completely different worlds. The Berlin Wall display is worth a quick visit.

Take the time to visit this place it's a quiet sactuary amid the hustle and bustle of busy Berlin. You can find excellent places to eat or just relax with a drink. Potsdamer Platz shows what Berlin has achied since unification like nowhere else in the city. A desolate waste ground seperating East and West during the wall years it... More

It's so amazing to think that only few years ago they had only Comunist style buildings, and now the finest example of contemporary architecture. The Sony center is just amazing and sitting in one of the cafes outside is a great way to drink your coffee. I took a taxi bike to Brandemburg Gate and that was also one of... More

A true hotspot of new Berlin, people watching, things happening, and time passing. We enjoyed sipping ice crushed tea from Starbuck and seeing the new Transformer movie display up out by Sony.

Potsdamer Platz is an ultra modern location to enjoy New Years Eve. Between the throngs of intensely drunk tourists and the fireworks ricocheting off of the skyscrapers it is truly a metropolitan paradise.

In the 1920's, Potsdamer Platz was the bustling center of Berlin. During World War II, it was bombed into rubble. During the Cold War the dividing line and later the Berlin Wall ran right through it. Now it is an ultra-modern steel and glass complex that makes it seem like a cross between a shopping mall and corporate theme park... More

As all have said - an impressive new square with ultra modern buildings such as the Sony Centre and Panorama Punkt and of course the U-Bahn stations. However,if you are looking for a quick snack or lunch, ignore the more expensive options and head for the Arkaden Potsdamer Platz. The Arkaden is a three storey shopping mall with an entrance...
