Potsdamer Platz

Potsdamer Platz used to be one of the busiest intersections/areas in the city of Berlin, but it was completely destroyed in the war and then when the wall was built it went right through here, so it pretty much stayed an empty wasteland after the war.

In the last twenty years it has been completely rebuilt as an ultra-modern center with skyscrapers for the Deutsche Bahn (train in Germany) and Sony. There is a movie theater here too, and mall and stuff, but it's very overpriced and I get the impression it's really just tourists and the actual Berliners don't hang out here.
