Alexanderplatz, Berlin

(3,200+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
In the 1970s, Alexanderplatz became the centerpiece of East Germany's modern socialist approach to architecture and city planning. Alex, as many locals call it, has lived many lives over the centuries, including cattle market, military parade ground, center stage of one of the largest anti-government demonstrations in the country's history, and modern transportation hub. The square's name honors Tsar Alexander I of Russia, who visited the city in 1805. Today, the square attracts tourists with its iconic clock, a rotating installation displaying time around the globe. The nearby TV tower, the city's highest structure, features a popular rotating viewing platform. By using our Berlin travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Alexanderplatz and other attractions in Berlin.

  • Great center hub. Easy access to several rail lines. Was here during a festival, lots of cool street vendors. Easy access to many sites in Berlin, including TV Tower. Make sure you have lots of change as restrooms throughout Berlin tourist sites as it cost ,50€ regardless of whether you are a paying customer.
  • Nice great and big place. Loads of shops and monuments. Big train station. Animations are made there. There's a big fountain in the middle that looks nice. Also a church. The Rathaus is very close also. You should go there at least once if you are in Berlin.
  • The most happening place in Berlin (I would say). You can get any shop you want, from branded to cheapest all at one place.. The TV tower over here is a great tourist attraction (you can have a aerial view of Berlin from here). If wanna take a ride of Berlin connecting the important part of it.. take the bus 100 or 200 from here.. I bet it will be a lifetime ride :)..
  • Kind of busy but not exactly charming square. Often has a market/fair but selling very generic goods and food. There are other nicer places to hang out in Berlin...
  • Hey there, This is one of the most beautiful places i have ever been. Because there you can find every thing you want or need like the best clothing shops, the best elctronic shop and the best Fast and public food.....and many other things to find out. the TV tower looks amazing in that yard as well as the world clock, absolutely lovely❤.
