Potsdamer Platz

Formerly just a sandy waste land known during the cold war as the death strip, this area has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent decades to become a symbol of the new reunited Germany.

A bold statement of urban renewal, it unites an American Plaza feel with tree lined European sensibilities to produce a lively modern atmosphere.

Whether day or night the cityscape here offers stunning views and plenty of photo opportunities.
