We loved Potsdamer Platz and I believe it's the best place to stay in Berlin! We stayed in the Berlin Marriott just north of the platz, and it provided excellent transport services to and from Schönefeld Airport and all over Berlin! I love modern architecture and this place was outstanding, the tall skyscrapers and contemporary apartment blocks. Lots of lovely... More

Potsdamer Platz is right spot on the old East West divide. It was rebuilt after reunification. For this reason, it has no historical charm, and the buildings have a rather corporate lack of intimacy. I often stayed at the Mandala, an excellent modern hotel with a fabulous spa and a wonderful restaurant (but the mattresses are so stiff!). Potsdamer is... More

It is amazing to see a place that changed its face many times so dramatically. There are plenty of them in Berlin and Potsdamer Platz is one of them. Before WWII, it was the heart of Berlin. It was left scarred by the war and then with the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961 Potsdamer Platz was physically divided... More

Potsdamer Platz is a lovely part of down town Berlin filled with excellent modern architecture and lots of restaurants. It houses The Sony Centre, a great film museum (mainly about German film history, but a must for any Fritz Lang fan) and a cinema where many a blockbuster film premier is held. It is located within walking distance of the... More

An exciting part of downtown Berlin that offers some stunning architecture and no shortage of attractions. The Sony Centre has become the centrepiece and I suppose that no trip to Berlin is complete without a picture of the Sony Centre in the slide show! The location is convenient with the Holocaust Memorial, Brandenburger Tor and the Reichstag only a short... More

This "new" center of West Berlin, bordering on the Tiergarten, has much to offer: extensive underground metro stations, remarkable above-ground skyscrapers (one a modern masterpiece of Renzo Piano), a gigantic shopping center, countless eateries, both fast food and more refined fare, a film museum, various cinemas and some pleasant outdoor resting places when the weather permits. But it takes time... More

took the U bahn easy to find. Lovely are to soak in the scenery and traffic. We found a nice coffee house and sat outside and watched the world go by which is what you do in Berlin. You can see the difference here to East Berlin many gr8 places to see.

We left this place not really knowing what all the fuss was about. It was a lively location and maybe better enjoyed by younger people (we are in our 50s).

Not to everybody's taste, but the new buildings surrounding Potsdamer Platz are stunning. One of them looks like a spear hurled into the earth, others are straight out of Star Wars. Spend a bit of time just looking and appreciating the design concepts and features, take some pics. And it's free!
