Leipziger Platz, Berlin
(1.5/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Leipziger Platz is an octagonal square in the center of Berlin. It is located along Leipziger Straße just east of and adjacent to the Potsdamer Platz. Leipziger Platz was reduced to ruins during the Second World War and was once part of the no man's land surrounding the Berlin Wall, but has since been reconstructed in its original configuration, albeit with modern architecture.Prior to the war, the square was home to the Reichsmarineamt (Reich Navy Office, originally on Leipziger Platz 13, moved to No. 17/Voßstraße No. 20 in the 1900s), the Wertheim flagship department store (numbers 12-13), the Mosse-Palais (headquarters of the German publisher Hans Lachmann-Mosse, Leipziger Platz 15), Palast-Hotel (No. 18-19) and the Prussian Ministry of Agriculture (No. 6-9). Today, it is home to the Canadian Embassy and the American Jewish Committee. There is also a little piece of the Berlin Wall located in the southern half.

  • Near Potsdamer Platz, Leipziger Platz, formerly Oktogon is named. Einder of the 2 great places for military use in the old Berlin: Oktogon Octagon =, = layer Rondelle round square (today Mehring), square, = Carrée today Pariser Platz. As at Potsdamer Platz, there with the Mall of Berlin many shops, as a multi-story shopping paradises: too close and too much now appears to show. But competition stimulates business hopefully - rank world city has the selection!

  • with exposed pipes and small pieces of wall-paintings with the famous ' heads '. Elegant shopping mall at number 12: go in the toilet if you don't believe me:) I dined frequently at the food court and bought many souvenirs and gifts, it's huge.

  • Road to Potsdamer Platz found this square octagonal shape surrounded by modern buildings, some cafes and a large shopping centre. There is also a small area of the wall disappeared. While is a square very neat not presents any attractive special, by which only worth it penalty visit it if is is of step.
