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. Before you head to Berlin, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Berlin trip maker app, to make sure you see all that Berlin has to offer, including Potsdamer Platz.

  • Awesome history, you will be here on your sight seeing trip, checking where the wall was, how it looked like before and of course the transformation today. Crazy and great. Close by the Sony center, Mall of Berlin (shopping for the ladies), spy museum, lots of other great places
  • Potsdamer Platz was great, even though it’s hard to find a parking space. It’s full of cars, and you need to pay for parking. We had good luck as we arrived shortly before 9pm at the weekend. From 9pm til next day it’s free. You have everything you need. Cinema, Casino, Restaurants, Bars…
