From a bustling neighborhood of creatives and adventurous youth in the 1920s, to a desolate and destroyed no-man’s land for 40 years, to today’s trendy centre full of restaurants, cinemas, ritzy hotels, shopping centres and modern architecture, Potsdamer Platz has undergone immense transformation over the years. Undoubtedly, Potsdamer Platz is one of the most iconic places in Berlin and, as a company that embraces transformation and excitement, Mercato Metropolitano is eager to make our next home there. We want to lead the next era of entrepreneurs, artists, and chefs in Potsdamer Platz and re-energize a neighborhood while still embracing the location’s former glory and history.
One of Berlin’s lasting food concepts that has recently seen a rise in popularity is the “Markthalle”, or the central indoor market location known as a place to meet like-minded people and enjoy an array of great food. Leading this trend is Mercato Metropolitano who will be bringing a different type of “Markthalle” to Berlin full of delicious food and founded in a community and sustainability centered approach that shapes everything we do.
