- When darkness closes in over Nollendorfplatz, life really gets going. In the 1930s, Nollendorfplatz was a centre of diversion and culture, home to artists and writers, with an almost Parisian flair. People came from far and wide to visit the popular Metropol Theatre and to admire the steel and glass dome which crowned the station. Bombed to smitherines during the War, Nollendorfplatz was rebuilt in the ensuing years with monstrous post-war high-rises. The only reminder of how Nollendorfplatz used to be is a series of paintings hanging in the Ephraim-Palais. The area is, however, still renowned for its nightlife which flourishes in the streets around Winterfeldtplatz.
