Just a mall in disguise - large lego store, local chain based restaurants, Sony center, etc. Outdoor mixed use retail, office, apartments… just like any other city. It was more interesting fifteen years ago when the rubble of east/west was all there was...

We visited on Sunday when all the shops were closed - good for husbands who don't like shopping - not good when there are Sale signs in the shops!!!

This area hosts the Sony center. It is a well known area for cinematography and the central hub of the Berlinale festival. Close to this platz you will find the mall of berlin.

What a great time of year to visit Berlin with everyone in a Festive mood. Potsdamer had tobogganing, curling, merry go rounds, but it was the smell of the gluhwein (mulled wine), currywurst, schneeballen (Snowballs) and frittes (hot chips) that drew us in. The streets were alive and there was so much to do with various markets and activities no... More

From a huge bombed out site the new Potsdamerplaz is now a large modern development and station. Many new attractions shops and museums have been built there. However it could be anywhere in the world and gives little indication of being in Berlin.

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.
