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.

  • Potsdamer Platz Station is on the ground and Potsdamer Platz. Because it is unexpectedly large, if the exit which rises to the ground is mistaken, it will walk considerably. The Berlin Wall is on display, but if you have time, I personally think it would be better to look elsewhere than here.
