Potsdamer Platz, Berlin
(3.8/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Berlin trip itinerary planner makes visiting Potsdamer Platz and other Berlin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Modern and beautiful square, where there is a portion of an old dining room of a hotel bombed, incorporated into a new structure.

  • I recommend to people who like and want to see one of the most famous places of Berlin. The square is also fair and there are elements of the Berlin wall

  • We went to miss us this square, but it is necessary to visit it. Takes you to remember the change of city of East and West. It is very modern and you can see where the wall passed since it crosses a stripe on the floor for their tour
