Pariser Platz, Berlin: 7 reviews and 21 photos
Pariser Platz stands at the eastern end of Unter den Linden next to the Brandenburg Gate. It was laid out between 1732 and 1734 in what was a Baroque expansion of the city. It received its present name with the Prussian capture of Paris in 1814. By 1850 the area was surrounded by classically styled buildings and the area remained the same until WW2 when the area was badly damaged by bombing with only a few buildings and the Brandenburg Gate remaining standing. With the end of WW2 most of the buildings including the Hotel Adlon were demolished. With the border between east & west Berlin being close by the area became part of no man's land with guard towers. Since reunification the area and the buildings have been restored to its former glory but with a modern interior makeover. Pariser Platz is a pedestrian area and is a focal point for tourists and a meeting place.
