Berlin's life is pulsating at Potsdamer Platz. Every day thousands of tourists and
Berliners visit this area to view the changing and growing of a new city part in
the center of Berlin. Cinemas, shops, galeries and restaurants invite
consumers to stay here.
However, for more than 28 years the place was dead land in the citie's heart and at night
the lamps of the Berlin Wall enlighted the Potsdamer Platz area to prevent East
German citizen from escaping to West Berlin.
After opening the border in 1989 the wall was very quickly demolished and only some
segments of the backland wall and a watchtower survived.
In 1999, ten years later, the Berlin government demolished most part of the remaining Wall
at Potsdamer Platz. It's a question of time that the last part will be removed by the city
