    Bahnhof Potsdamer Platz

    BAHNHOF  POTSDAMER  PLATZ

    The best visible building on the level of Potsadamer Platz was a square, glass and quite huge construction signed as Bahnhof Potsdamer Platz (train station Potsadamer Platz).
    In real it was the entrance to huge underground city: S-bahn station which was connected underground with Potsdamer Platz Arkaden (shopping mall), Quarter Daimler-Chrysler and Sony Center. Watch carefully direction signs not to get lost there.

    Thin skyscraper

    THIN  SKYSCRAPER

    This thin, glass and tall building stood at Potsdamer Platz next to the highest in Berlin Kollhoff Building.

    Hmm... the skyscrapers around Potsdamer Platz were not that high - this was Europe not say the USA. The tallest European building is the Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt, Germany with the height of "only" 259 m (850 ft) that ranks it outside the top 50 tallest scyscrapers.

    Panorama from the Kollhoff Building

    KOLLHOFF  BUILDING

    This red clinker-clad Kollhoff building on my picture stands on the corner of Potsdamer Platz and Potsdamer Stra?e. There were advertisements where I could write that the express elevator - the fastest in Europe - leaded to a panorama platform with breathtaking views over the whole area. Excuse, I didn't have enough time to go up there, maybe next time.

    Just in case you want to go there:
    Lift to Panorama costed 3.50 ?.
    Opening hours:
    Tue - Sun 11.00 am - 8.00 pm, last entry 7.30 pm;
    from April, 1: Mon - Fri: 11.00 am - 8.00 pm, last entry 7.30 pm.
