In the 1970s, Alexanderplatz became an experiment in socialist urban aesthetics. The square is the home to the World Time Clock, a continually rotating installation that shows the time around the globe and Hermann Henselmann’s Haus des Lehrers.

Another great plaza/space in Berlin.

Another cool, modern plaza in this massive city. Plenty of shopping, food, and people watching if that is your interest.

Yes it is a big square with many landmarks and crowded shopping centers, but such kind of places are everywhere in the world. So, just fine, not special.

What would you expect in a modern European metropolitan? Nice architecture with modern buildings, busy railway station, nice music performances by local musician and a tall TV tower. The international clock shows that Berlin wants to be a world tourist destination. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee or a glass of beer in the area.

It is just a square in Berlin, lots of commerce and tourism attracted for the TV tower and train station. Many times during the year events are organised in this square.

Absolutely nothing to see! Only thing you find here are some shops and places to eat. Metro connections here are good. That is everything.

Probably the most unpleasant place in Berlin. Surrounded by malls with communist appearance, dirty, noisy. And, what's worst, you cannot avoid it, since most of the public transports stops here.

I loved the atmosphere of this square, there is always something to do/see in the day time, a lot of shopping places and restaurants. The tv tower is also here. I think it is a must of Berlin. Also cute lights at night :)

In what was once East Germany, Alexanderplatz has so much in terms of shops and restaurants, but you must find the time in your home country according to the World Clock and get a photo!

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.
