The heart of the new metropolis of Berlin beats on Potsdamer Platz. This square, where Berliners and tourists alike now flock to cinemas, restaurants and shops, was already a hub of urban life in the 1920s. After World War II, it became a desolate wasteland, but since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Potsdamer Platz – for a long time Europe’s largest building site – has become a city within the city, surrounded by imposing buildings erected in the last ten years, and still being added to today.

The best time to visit the Sony Center is in the early evening, when the inside of the Plaza is lit up.

    The Sony Center is the most ambitious, successful and architecturally interesting building in the new Berlin. The cupola structure, designed by Helmut Jahn and opened in 2000, is the European headquarters of the Sony company, and with its cinemas and restaurants it is also a social magnet.

  2. Filmmuseum Berlin

  3. Café Josty

    Café Josty harkens back to its legendary predecessor, a regular haunt for artists and intellectuals in the 19th century. The new Café Josty is partially housed in the historic Kaisersaal (Emperor’s Hall) of the former Grand Hotel Esplanade.

  4. Weinhaus Huth

    The only building on Potsdamer Platz to have survived World War II, the Weinhaus today accommodates restaurants and the fascinating art gallery Daimler Contemporary.

  5. Marlene-Dietrich-Platz

    This square in front of the Stella-Musical-Theater is dedicated to the great actress. A brash Flower Balloon, by the artist Jeff Koons, enlivens the centre of the square.
