With the falling of the wall, Potsdamer Platz has benefitted from huge investment and the Sony Centre with its trendy bars and restaurants is a massive part of that. There is also a part of the wall left remaining.

Old and new Berlin merge in this space. Soaring skyscrapers and old stone buildings portray Berlin and give one an idea of the strength of the German people.

Our main visit here was to have some lunch. Walked around in the complex of outdoors but indoors architecture "mall" amazed by forms, glas, roofings and other crazy ideas for creating something unique and special. We didn't do any shopping, but if there seemed to be a vast variety of shops and also a cinema along with restaurants.

We stayed here and it was full of life during the holidays. It was also a short walk to many restaurants and attractions as well as the mall. It was nice to be in a central location with our kids.

Located in the heart of the city, Potsdamer Platz is the modern center of the New Berlin. There are many places to shop and eat in the immediate area and it is bustling with locals and tourists.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
