If you are in Berlin in December you just have to visit the Christmas Market at Alexanderplatz. Even in summer I suggest you visit Alexanderplatz. There are lots of Gallerias and Malls. If you want to buy rather cheap but at the same time high quality clothes (both men's and ladies') you have to visit C&A. The food department at... More

This is the location of one of the numerous Christkindlmrkt locations in Berlin. We joined a Christmas lights tour near here, so after the tour we took in the Christkindlmrkt. It's the usual market with Christmas items, bratwurst, and glühwein. The Christkindlmrkt really helps to put you in the Christmas spirit! There are a number of stores around the square... More

I stayed in the centre of Alexanderplatz and couldn't really think of anything negative except maybe a few more restaurants. The square is filled with shops and things to do and is a really really nice area to stay with easy access to the underground which will bring you all around Berlin!

Great area for shopping, food and the main thing that caught my eye here...the street performers. Most of them were absolutely brilliant and we spent hours going from performer to perfomer being highly entertained

It´s a public place to visit and know the touristic Berlin. There are a lot of restaurants and pubs around and the Berliner Fernsehturm - Berlin´s Tv Tower - where you can take a look of the city from 368 meters.

I was staying in IBIS at AlexanderPlatz, Berlin. The TV tower was at a walking distance. The best time to see it is at night. It is decorated with colorful lights, and really looks wonderful at night. At the time of my visit, since it was Autumn break, there was Autumn market very close to my hotel. I enjoyed stralling...

Awesome place to go shopping, it gets crazy busy but everything is within walking distance. You have access to all of the international brands you could wish for and it is easily assessable by U-bahn.
