Named for the city of Potsdam where it led to, Potsdamer Platz is a square in Berlin. But it isn’t just any square. This place is deeply important to and inextricably linked to the history of Germany. It was razed to the ground during the Second World War but has risen from those ruins.
It now is a very busy traffic area in Berlin. Huge sky scrapers align it and it is a hub for all things Berlin. There are several shops, bars and restaurants that operate on it. This makes it a busy tourist destination. The most striking of all the buildings that make the Potsdamer Platz definitely is the Sony Center. It is popular with the locals as a meeting point too. It is today the heart of a metropolis that quite like the Platz is full of history and a tragic past.

This was no mans land when city was divided as was totally destroyed during WW2. Only after reunification it was rebuilt and although I do like some of the building but I would prefer more parks and greenery. But there is nice cinema multiplex and near is Mall of Berlin as well as important intersection of public transport and railway station.
This is a huge complex, so just know that when you say, "Let's go to Potsdamer Platz," you could be going shopping, eating, to watch a movie, to the Lego store, or to the lookout on top. The area could be in any big city, anywhere in the world, but this is a nice area to hang out. It is worth buying a ticket for the panorama point. There is a historical timeline and some cool, old photos. This is also a gathering spot for protesters. Nothing to be scared of, the gatherings are usually quite small.
Nice place to visit. You might wanna walk around and just explore the area. There are places worth visiting
It's a amazing place where the history and the new construction find place. Still have some parts of the Berlin Wall, great buildings from huge companies. It's a place where you need to visit in Berlin, with a lot of knowledge and it's free
Very nice place. The Berlin Mall is located here. Very easy access using the subway system
