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.

Hotel was great, next to train station, Alexa Shopping was excellent. There is a small grocery store which offer almost all daily use items. The restaurants are about a 20 minutes walk. City sightseeing bus is just round the corner. Amazing place.

I would not travel here for this. If you are around the area, have a look around...... It’s a shopping plaza which is pretty hip as per the photo....

It is a huge flat concrete waste land full of tourists wondering why they are there. No shade to be found (a few trees would be nice) and just a few low end food stalls. Why bother.

Our hotel was in Alexanderplatz, well almost... It really is two "squares" and the train line runs through the middle of it as does the tram route. Staying there is not a bad idea as it is very central to many sights and places of...More

A very modern vibrant area. Good shopping and restaurant options. Modern architecture. Clean and well maintained.

There are some decent shop there (Topshop, T K Maxx) but the area is a cross between bleak and dismal, even on a pleasant day. The architecture just didn't do it for me but the TV tower is well worth a visit.

Crowded and dinghy. Area seemed less clean (actually it felt filthy!) compared to Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, Gendarmenmarkt). Just a transport hub & shopping. The clock didn’t seem to work while were there. Don’t bother coming

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights

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
