Great when one wants to eat something and go to the movies; well-located in terms of public transport. Very business park/mall atmosphere, though. (And possibly dangerous, as a lightbulb falling from about 5 stores up hit the ground only inches from me and some other people in brought daylight with not particular weather conditions to cause it.)

The architecture is very striking. We returned repeatedly to the square below the tent-like roof of the Sony Center, as there are a number of good restaurants and bars round this square.

No other place symbolises the changes that occurred in Berlin since the fall of the Wall as the Potsdamer Platz. Visit the Sony Center.

Potzdamer Platz is likened to Times Square but that's really not fair. The location was previously in no mans land with the wall (marked all through the city by a double stone path) running through it. In a fit of extreme modernization many tall and architecturally interesting (?) buildings surround a transportation hub. It's a great place to stay near... More

It's a busy and buzzing space, there are Berlin wall sections in position to see close up and to understand both how it was then and how it has changed today. An amazing transformation to imagine.

Postdamer Platz has become a very lively neighborhood. As a tip, the panoramic view on top of the Daimler building is worth the view, for a cheaper price (6,50 eur in April 16) than the TV tower (about 20 eur).

Perfect mix of old world and new. Beautiful modern architecture set behind a block of the Berlin wall. Berlin Mall shopping center nearby.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
