Potsdamer Platz and the New Centre
Germany (Deutschland DE)
This was one of the busiest squares in the whole of Europe during the 1900s and when the Berlin Wall was built it had a platform that enabled Westerners to look over the Berlin Wall and into the Eastern part of the city. After many years of neglect, recent restoration and renovation have created a magnificent new, impressive area, full of shops, bars, cafés, restaurants and numerous other venues for entertainment.
Potsdamer Platz is a thriving square and is rapidly becoming the heart of the city. There are many modern constructions and the Sony Centre has a large, contemporary roof that resembles a sail. For some of the best views in the city, visit Panorama-Point, which is located at the very top of the breathtaking Kollhof building. A lift is available and it is thought to be the fastest lift in Europe. The Potsdamer Platz is easy to reach by either U-Bahn, S-Bahn or bus.
