    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).
