The Berliner Weihnachtszeit Christmas market is just a wonderful experience and a photographer’s delight! The market has plenty of local delights. Rides for kids big and small that make outstanding photo backdrops. Food fit for Saint Nick! Can be crowded but that’s cause it’s great!

Alex is ugly and stays it. Ugly architecture, ugly surfaces. I remember it from the 1970s. Then it was even worse. The best thing for me to do was to take the underground and go somewhere else. Sorry.

As the others say, if you walk around you will find some down the streets that are quite nice or Visit karl marx Allee and you will find a few (this is where the Berlin beer festival is held).

Take bus from tag, goes directly to Alexanderplatz, costs 2.80 euros for a single way trip. 2nd option take a train again same price. Once you get down you might have tk take a tram or ang other bus based on exact location
