It is wonderful to see the development since I was last here, just after the wall came down. A well designed built environment. Much to admire.

Potsdamer Platz is worth a visit if only to see the surrounding cityscape. The architecture is stunning and it is close to the line of the old city wall. There is shopping close by for those who need retail therapy!

Admired the three tall elegant buidings in a row - Atrium, Kollhoff , DB Tower. Just infront of Atrium Tower, we saw a replica of Europe's first traffic light from 1925. Then we proceeded to Kollhoff Tower to take Europe's fastest elevator as in 20 seconds we were whisked up to the 24th floor to visit Panoramapunkt. We enjoyed the... More

Modern buildings and people going here and there, keep this area busy. International business are housed in the buildings, along with shops and restaurants. A busy S and U station transports crowds of people to and from the plaza. Don't expect help in the station. There are not many signs to direct the traveler nor are there ticket booths. I... More

Potsdamer Platz is adjacent to the southeast corner of Teirgarten. The area was the location of trading posts from at least the 17th century and the old road between Berlin and the city of Potsdam, for which the square is named. It has also been an important transport hub and area for nightlife in Berlin during its past. Sadly, Potsdamer... More

There are so many shops to choose from. There was plenty of restaurants and coffee shops to rest in from shopping.

I am totally in love with this place. If I could, I would spend there all day. Amazing buildings, beautiful lights. You need to visit it at night!

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.
