David Bowie's new album came out just before we went to Berlin, so of course we had to drop by here as it's mentioned in a song.

Chic, urban, architectural landmark. Have a coffee, wine & dine, shop all you want, and more. It's great for an evening out with friends.

A great little shopping centre in the middle of Berlin right next to the Potsdamer Platz station. Head to the Sony Centre to extend your time here. All major good stores here such as Mango, Zara, H&M etc. Convenient for what you may need

Potsdam Platz is an amazing, yet typical Berlin town, with lots to see and do! This is where I saw my first electric car and car charger!
