Berlin Germany Tourist Information and Travel Guide
Potsdamer Platz was the commercial and entertainment centre of Berlin Germany prior to World War II. The area, however, was devastated during the war by bombing.
In 1961 when the Berlin Wall was erected, the wall passed directly through the centre of Potsdamer Platz.
An information display about the wall, together with a few remaining concrete slabs, can be seen at this historical Berlin location.
