It is said that it is a city in the city. In fact, you feel on-site like in another world. At the beginning of the 18th century, Potsdamer Platz was the place where five streets became one.

Just before the Potsdamer Tor he lay and was one of the entrances through the city wall of Berlin. In 1838, the Potsdamer Fernbahnhof station was put into operation. The subway arrived in 1902.

The place thrived and upscale restaurants and accommodations such as the Palace Hotel or the Grand Hotel Bellevue opened their doors. Already after approx. 20 years the traffic at this junction had grown so strongly that in 1924 the traffic tower was set up for regulation.

And dismantled in 1937 again, because under it the S-Bahn should run and the construction work began. The organizational difficulties seem to have been a problem of Berlin’s urban development even then.

Reassuring that this is not the case since the construction of the airport. During World War II Potsdamer Platz was heavily bombed. Almost all the buildings that still stood became victims of the wrecking ball until mid-1970.

They had to make way for the Berlin Wall and the broad death strip. In the 90s of the last century, the construction work for today’s Potsdamer Platz began.

This tower should definitely be overcome with the elevator: not only because of the good view on the roof terrace, no, the elevator is unusually fast.
