Potsdamer Platz, Berlin

3.8
#1 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Berlin
An ever-expanding shopping and commercial area, Potsdamer Platz was once trapped in the no-man's-land dividing East and West Germany. At one of the busiest traffic intersections on the continent, the square now attracts visitors with its ultra-modern glass and steel architecture. This spot marks the point where the old road from Potsdam once passed through the city wall of Berlin. Almost totally destroyed during World War II, the square became the largest European building site in the 1990s. Near the square, you can explore a cluster of cultural buildings filled with museums, theaters, and art galleries.

  • Not surprising, a rich country square with a few pieces of the Berlin wall. Mandatory but the least surprising point in town

  • It's incredibly beautiful when the sun goes down. The whole area takes on a blue hue. Now the square has a pre-Christmas atmosphere, a lot of stalls where you can have a tasty snack and drink a hot drink. Also open the slide, you can ride on an inflatable tablet. Nearby is a shopping mall. I'll attach the photo later
