Great example of a phoenix rising from the ashes of the Cold War, awesome architecture, impressive skyline, hustling and bustling busy square, but laid out in such a way that it seems airy. Nice lawns on neighboring Leipziger platz. Great U Bahn transport hub.

The Potsdamer sq was the most important and busiest sq of the pre WWII era Berlin. It's named after Potsdam, a very important city and capital of the Brandenburg state. During the WWII it was totally demolished with no single brick standing, and after the division of Berlin was on no mans land. Just after the reunification massive construction began, so today it's a most modern sq in all Berlin - the only place in German capital you can find modern glass/steel skyscrapers. Some of its attractions include the Sony center with a huge movie theater, Mt. Fuji inspired modern tent like roof, Lego land for kids, as well modern dining options. It's also one of the main transport hubs serving the capital.

We stopped here during our day tour, for lunch. There is a mall and several restaurants, though probably overpriced and touristy (we had a good meal at Haus der 100 Biere). We could take photos at the pieces of the remaining Berlin Wall, and look at the former ghost metro station. We went here as part of "Alla Tours" all day tour of Berlin from our cruise ship's one day stop in Warnemunde port.

A fabulous area to walk around with many shops, restaurants, bars and cafes - and a safe pedestrianised area. There is a busy intersection but there are many road crossings that can be used (really unusual as they show a little green figure wearing a cap - there is a statue of this person in a Park area). There is a display of parts of the Berlin Wall with some very interesting background of the erection and demolishion of the Wall. In the Sony centre the ceiling changes colour - the ceiling is similar to a large circus tent! This area is a short walk from the Brandenburg Gate and is definitely worth a visit. The restaurants are reasonably priced and staff in any establishment I visited were really friendly.
