Potsdamer Platz is a cool area of town where you are gazing at some tall and modern buildings. It is the home of the Sony Center and there are pieces of the Berlin Wall in the platz detailing some information about the wall.

This area is a shinning example of hope, in a city with a history of separatist ideologies. West and East have met, and the shopping frenzy is filled with a buss of consumerism.

Its nice and the Sony Building and fountain area in the middle are pretty when all lit up.... but it is nothing beyond the type of attraction you would find anywhere in the world. Basic few restaurants... one Spanish, one Italian and one German. Not worth going out of your way to squeeze this in to sightseeing etc, but nice... More

Potsdamer Platz is nice :-) I was astonished by how I never got pestered by even one hustler or beggar or anything like that, for the whole time I was there. I was just lounging about on a bench for a fair bit of the time, on my own and all.. it was quite a nice place to just hang... More

A pretty boring version of any set of new buildings as seen anywhere in the world. Nothing to see really but interesting to know that it had all been flattened in the war.

The architecture here was different than other areas of the city and interesting to look at during my travels through the area. Some good eating as well.

IT was Christmas time when I visited this place, full of small workshops and sellers, very nice and christmas atmosphere. However, without these things it is still good place to come when visiting Berlin.
