After the fall of the Wall in 1989, Potsdamer Platz turned from a deserted wasteland into Europe's biggest building site as urban planners worked to create an ultra-modern city center in the middle of a reunited Berlin. The only remnants of old Potsdamer Platz are the historic Haus Huth and the majestic Hotel Esplanade ballroom, which has been cleverly incorporated into the Sony Center. Approximately half of the area contains offices; the rest is divided between entertainment complexes like the IMAX and a fantastic shopping mall.
Whenever I visit Potsdamer Platz, I feel there are a mix of multiculture and it exists in one place. The roof of Sony center looks like Mount. Fuji in Japan. But below the roof, there are many foreigners come and enjoy their time with various foods, drinks. And they talk about diffrerent topics. Potsdamer Platz always give space and time for everybody in the world. It is really one of the fascinating place in Europe.
Especially the Sony Center.. it's just so cool! Cool, is the right word for it. The architecture, the surrounding atmosphere, the visitors and locals. This is one of those places that I'll never get tired of visiting. And it's spotlessly clean, considering the amount of people that walks the place every minute of the day.
The architecture is highly modern, go visit in the evenings when the whole place is lit up...quite an experience. You also have 40 screens in three cinemas, loads of cafes & restaurants and the Potsdamer Platz Arcaden where you can shop til you drop...The Potsdamer Platz is easy to access by bus or subway. A must-see for all Berlin visitors.
We came back from Berlin yesterday. it was brilliant. A mixture of historic interest and the modern architecture of Potzdamer Platz made it such an exciting place. I loved the way the shopping Arkaden was hidden away underground only to find out much to my delight that it was actually 3 stories high. I need to go back again coz I didn't discover it until the end of the day and my feet were done in!!
Potzdammer Platz is a place you can visit over and over again without ever tiring of it. This is a good thing for an expatriot like me living in Berlin for 18 months. Plan on an evening out with the significant other at one of the restaurants and catch a movie at the IMAX 3D theater. After the movie, go back to one of the cafe's after and drink a few cold ones. Then, take the subway home and make love.
We were here for the Berlin film festival, and I thought Potsdamer Platz was a really neat development in Berlin. There is lots of shopping and movie theaters. It's fun to walk around and check out the buildings with their modern architecture.
