Take a walk around Potsdamer Platz and find out more about the unique modernist architecture of Berlin. Start your exploration of art at the Historic Traffic Light that has stood on this square for more than a century. Walk over to Winehaus Huth that seems to be a regular wine store until you learnt that it actually survived all the bombings of the World War II. Just a stone's throw away is the curious modern structure of Daimler Chrystler, a shopping centre which looks as if inside out. On your next step you will be gazing at the Debis complex designed by Renzo Piano, which has left his mark in the majority of the buildings, almost painting the neighbourhood ochre. On the most lively street of this area, which is Potsdamer Strasse, there stands the Sony Centre. Sneak under the glass roof to study it closer from below, as this construction is one of the most spectacular in the neighbourhood. Listen then about the Philharmonie where the Berlin Orchestra resides, and learn about how the architecture interweaves with acoustics. Walk across the street to study the Cultural forum and its modernist features, before finishing your tour considering the truly original design of the glass box that Neue Nationalgalerie appears. Prepare your curiosity and go learn about the wonders strewn all over the surroundings of Potsdamer Platz.
