Big public space, average shops and cafes. Nothing really special and one of the less ordered tackier places in central Berlin. Beware of trams!!!

A large area which is open and full of live, the picture is of the clock which is what I can only assume Jason Bourne mentioned in the movie. It am sure it would be amazing with a winter market as others have suggested. Worth a visit.

Had a fantastic four days in Berlin visiting the xmas markets. Travelled with friends & visited many of the markets, Alexanderplatz was one of the largest we visited. Plenty of stalls selling xmas baubles etc & plenty selling food & drink. The Glue vein was lovely & needed often to warm us up. Recommend a visit.

We spent a lot of time here. Main connections stations make it easy to get around. There is plenty of shops,restaurants and little pubs to keep you busy. Everybody we met here were very kind and friendly and also helpful. You can also jump on the tram to hackersher market which is full with shops and restaurants aswell.

This is very convenient for those shopping on a budget and wanting Primark as well as the shopping centre strategically placed across the road with higher end shops and boutiques. Can easily spend the day in this area. Lots of eateries too.

Not really sure on what to possibly review about a trainstation. However, if your a fan of the Bourne films it's a place that's familiar. However, if your visiting or passing through pop in to the crepe shop opposite doughnut shop

A perfect place to spend an afternoon shopping for clothes and tourist gifts. There is also plenty of choice for a bite to eat with local cuisine or chain restaurants.

When it comes to Alaxanderplatz, I would think of the Railway Station XD. Well, the plaza is not small, but nothing special. what you can do is to shop in C&A, Primark (Yes, the Irish brand), or walk little to see the TV tower. Oh by the way, it's East Berlin already, you can come here by tramway.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
