Create an itinerary including Potsdamer Platz
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 is a very modern part of the city with a great range of restaurants and shops. In November to December there is a pleasant Christmas Market. Easy to get there on the S-Bahn.

  • One of the busiest and touristic place in Berlin. It is located in the heart of the city. This place is decorated with very Urban landscape, modern architecture, skyscrapers, amusement places, restaurants, well transport communication network to other locations, shopping malls, cinema and top of all historic places and memorials of world was II.
  • Have been here countless times and I am glad to see the frequency is picking up again after the pandemic. Lots of hotels, restaurants, coffee places in walking distance, a giant movie theatre at the nearby SONY centre (where you may run into a a premiere with a Hollywood star from time to time) and easy access via public transportation make this one of the countless Berlin highlights for both visitors and local residents. I highly recommend coming here with a coffee to go and take a stroll around.
