Landmark
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.

  • I've seen the Leipziger Platz at night, great lit by the surrounding shops and you cross it if one wants to the Mall of Berlin, during the day he seems somewhat drab

  • Some places in Berlin seem to be taken out of the urban fabric. This is one of those places. Completely destroyed during the war, came out second life only after unification. Only the ultra modern buildings without a soul. Passed through.

  • Wall rather than chunks of concrete is part of the Berlin wall has been left. On the ground border between West Berlin and East Berlin. Seem wall had been removed quite compared to 10 years ago, did not.
