I was only here for dinner one night, but it was a really cool experience. Everything was lit up for Christmas and it was beautiful. They also had a really cool Christmas market.

After 2 days of sightseeing I thougt I saw most of Berlin but this part of town totally get me by surprise - it looks like a small New York - a lively, modern and full of light! It is enough to just walk that way to experience the vibrancy, and even better if you get a little time to... More

We stayed at the Marriott so we pretty much stayed at the Potsdamer Platz. It is a very modern platz, with a surrounding that reminds me of New York (Sony building, Ritz Carlton and Marriott). Nice food in the vicinity of the platz. Of course you also have Berlin Mall to enjoy.

A home of shops, eateries and street sausages. Visited during the daytime and at night. Had a street sausage with beer. Walked across the square. Would come back again.

Set in the heart of the new metropolis of Berlin, locals and tourists flock restaurants, shops and movie theaters. Check out the Sony Center and the Boulevard der Stars with red asphalt!

Once it was the central place of Berln, then it was a vast area, split in half by the Berlin Wall. Now it is revived with interesting architecture, shopping-malls, restaurants and all.

A modern place full of restaurants outside under the big sunroof/blades. If you visit I would prefer a visit in the summer and why not visit the IMAX movie theater.

Went to Potsdamer Platz by U-Bahn for a shopping day and was not disappointed by the variety of shops which included the massive Mall of Berlin with loads of international stores such as Zara and C&A. Also visited the Sony Centre to bring the children to the Lego Store in the basement of the Cineplex which they absolutely loved. Food... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
