About Potsdamer Platz
Named after the city of Potsdam which is 25km away from Berlin, it marks the spot where the old road to Potsdam crossed through the city at Potsdam Gate. It has since developed and expanded in size from a rural carriageway to the site of major redevelopment projects in recent years.
Although not technically a square, the area has been transformed from its original purpose of a busy traffic intersection in the 1920s which featured the first set of traffic lights in Europe, shops, cafés and entertainment. After WW2 it was a no man’s land for decades until 1989.
Rich international investors and renowned architects then saw the potential in the area and made it one of the hottest real estate areas in Europe. The Berlin Film Festival rolls out the red carpet each year at the country’s most glamorous calendar event. Each February, the best in the movie industry descend on the city for the A-list event where the stars mingle for the crowds on the new Marlene Dietrich Platz.
