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.

When standing in the middle of this busy square, you feel so small and the world around you feels so alive! It feels good to be alive there. more »
A part of human history... some of which you can still feel as you walk around this area... other than that, the Christmas Market and the huge shopping Mall nearby are good attractions to visit. Highly recommended...
My father and I visited this plaza in Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪 in June 2012. It's a very nice place. We visited the museum on the fourth/day of our trip to Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪 and the museum is about the films. It's a very interesting museum. We're the visitors from Dublin, Ireland 🇮🇪!
