Used as a commercial and military transport center before World War I, this famous town square, which was trapped in the no-man's-land next to the Berlin Wall during the Cold War, is currently under construction to become once again one of Berlin's chief commercial centers.

In my mind this isn't an attractive square to visit. It is very modern with a busy road running right across it. Come for the Sony centre, the mall etc but not for the square itself.

We came to Potsdamer Platz to shop the Mall of Berlin, but there was so much more to take in as we walked the area. I found the architecture of the area fascinating. The Sony Center was a great attraction in the area. We dined...More

Before the Second World War, Potsdamer Platz was the busy inner city center of Berlin. Following the bombing and destruction during the war and the building of the Wall, the square became a massive, deserted area. During our visit to Berlin in the 1970's there...More

Taking a step to this square is like taking a step to the history of Berlin. I advise you to open your eyes and just explore the miracle.

A modern place with few attractions. Depends on what your taste is, it can be fun or boring. But not too much history there so if you are surcharges for something historical, you may be disappointed.

Our hotel was on this area and it was central to so many things we wanted to do. The restaurants, shops, tra.s were so close. Walking to many historical sights was wonderful.

While not answering your question directly I can say we stayed right near Check Point Charlie and really liked that location. Personally I don't think you need that class of accommodation in the very modern city of Berlin.
