Potsdamer Platz

The next stop was Berlin. Here’s a picture of the modern architecture at Potsdamer Platz (Potsdam Square), an important public square and intersection of the heart of the city. The square was destroyed in WW2 and never rebuilt during the Cold War, when it was bisected by the Berlin Wall, only to be redeveloped in the past three decades after the fall of the Wall. Seen here, from left to right are Potsdamer Platz 11, a very sharp flatiron of 79 metres, designed by Renzo Piano, Kollhoff-Tower, 101 metres tall and named after its architect, and the BahnTower, 103 metres, designed by Helmut Jahn and the HQ of Deutsche Bahn (German Railway). One of the entrances of the Potsdamer Platz railway station (Bahnhof) is seen in the foreground, along with some old parts of the Berlin Wall.
