This triangular shaped square used to be part of the medieval city ramparts, which is where its unusual shape comes from. During the heady days of the 1920s—when Berlin led the world in fashion and design—Hausvogteiplatz was an internationally renowned centre of haute couture. As much of the fashion business was run by Jews, this was soon put an end to by the Nazis after they seized power in 1933. Much of the square was destroyed in the War, yet what has survived has been carefully restored. Today, Hausvogteiplatz is home to various television companies.
