    Like a mini Manhattan in Berlin. The skyscrapers are impressive from ground level, and you can also enjoy top views of the city from the Panoramapunkt café/viewing platform.

    This is my favorite nighttime-spot in Berlin! I love how Bahnhof Potzdamer Platz looks beside the gigantic DB-building. And there is also a post with the historical context of the train station.

    Great location for whatever plans you might have. Walk to the Mall of Berlin, to Sony Center for cinema and coffee, or walk to the Jewish Memorial and Brandenburger Tor in 5 min max!

    Go when it's warm & massive lightening storms are expected. Sit at the front of a restaurant with the sliding walls open. Enjoy the tremendous acoustics of rolling thunderclaps & metallic rain. Video: Read more

    Posh neighborhod, tall buildings, made of steel and glass facades. Don't miss a chance to take a look on Sony Center from the inside, this umbrella-like tent roof looks so futuristic.

    Its modern architecture marks the new landscape of a unified Berlin. A curious fact is that Potsdamer Platz is where the first traffic lights in Europe were installed. http://bit.ly/QPxfkx

    One of my favorite places in Berlin. Love the modern architecture, especially the Sony Center. The Potsdamer Platz area is also the "film center" of Berlin.

    Head to Potsdamer Platz, one of Europe’s busiest squares in the 1930s and a complete wasteland during the Berlin Wall years. Today’s collection of high-rise offices includes the sparkling Sony Center

    The Winter World at Potsdamer Platz kicked last Friday. It's open until January 6th so you have plenty of time to visit and try out the largest mobile toboggan run in Europe! Read more

    Perhaps the most visible symbol of the ‘New Berlin’. The historical Potsdamer Platz was a busy traffic hub that became synonymous with metropolitan life and entertainment in the early 20th century.

    Trendy, vibrant financial district of Berlin with a fascinating history, and colorful residential and office buildings, a refreshing change from regular glass buildings of other financial districts.

    It looks like the Mayans were wrong and that the world won't end today! But if you're around Potsdamer Platz later today and see a sight like this one, it might mean they were right after all...

    Don't miss the start of Berlin's Festival of Lights tonight at 19:30 in front of the Kollhoff-building at Potsdamer Platz. We hope it'll be as cool as this photo from last year! Read more

    More of a shopping and transit hub, Potsdamer Platz is pretty spectacular as the sun goes down and the lights give the architecture a wonderful sparkle.

    The centre of new Berlin - so much history to read about in this area. Lots of high end hotels and US chain shops around here

    Interesting modern spot to visit for a quick stop, but mostly for its history. Now it's mostly only tourists. Of historic interest is an old GDR watchtower on Erna-Berger-Straße (at Leipziger Platz).

    Beautiful buildings at sunset. Very modern and lots of restaurants around

    Mostly malls and offices. No real nightlife scene, not worth a visit if you're looking to explore the better areas of the city. Tip: be sure to check out the hidden Keith Haring sculpture!

    Worth a visit, particularly at night during October when the light festival is on - uplit trees and projections onto buildings give this place a magical feel.

    A great location to people watch. The Christmas market during the winter takes up nearly the entire plaza.

    Nice country side of Berlin. People are very organized. The only disadvantage it was super hot and there were no AC around

    Large, modern and lacking green stuff, but hey: look around, see the architecture. Isn't this place cool and photogenic?

    You should visit the Dali museum. It is very nice and cheap, 12 euro per person.

    If you are looking for good food and no tourist rip-off, try the Coa (right next to the Mariott Hotel and the Vapiano)

    Add at least half an hour to your journey time to get and work one of the DB ticket machines. Utterly disgraceful but that's the way it is.

    It marks the point where the old road from Potsdam passed through the city wall at the Potsdam Gate. Since German reunification, Potsdamer Platz has been the site of major redevelopment projects.

    Brush up on your Berlin Wall history with a very informative group of panels (actually mounted on a part of the wall).
