There is no better location to see the transition of Berlin’s history than at Potsdamer Platz. From a transportation hub to entertainment metropolis in the roaring 1920s, it is difficult to imagine that for 28 years this cabaret capital belonged to the desolate death strip that bordered the Berlin Wall. Home to the first traffic light system on the continent and falling directly between the Soviet, American and British sectors during the Cold War, Potsdamer Platz is packed with history. Check out the Sony Centre modelled on Mount Fuji or delve into the cultural delights of the renowned Philharmonic and Culture Forum. Stop by the Hanse Recording Studios where the legendary David Bowie recorded his album “Heroes” and enjoy the impressive architecture that once again surrounds this incredibly historical space.
