Germany's largest square
Jul 2021
At this lively square named after Tsar Alexander I, you can still feel the GDR vibes.

The Weltzeituhr (World clock), the Brunnen der Völkerfreundschaft (Fountain of International Friendship), and the Fernsehturm – East Berlin’s famous television tower are located here.

The square is an important transport junction for the S-Bahn, U-Bahn, regional trains, trams, and buses.

Crowded place and entrance to a lot of shops here. Also a COVID-19 test center, which provides free test.
Acces to all trains as well

This must be one of eastern Europe's grayest and most depressing squares -- worth visiting for negative thrills, but beware: it's dimly lit and somewhat unsafe at night. The food on offer is, of course, terrible, but the excellent S-Bahn will quickly get you to greener pastures.

Worth Seeing
Feb 2020
A must see if you are in Berlin, perhaps best viewed from the TV tower also. Great transport links, you can probably add this in passing, and do not need to go out of your way to see.

Huge modern square
Jul 2020
It was the most depressing square that we had ever encountered in 1991- it felt like we had entered another world- a cold August morning & the sky was so grey, matching the buildings.
Not much has changed !

Quite an interesting place!
Jul 2020
Have been to Berlin so many times and never ever failed to visit Alexanderplatz! This place is always packed with tourists however during this visit it was shocking to see only a handful of tourists were there due to Covid-19. We visited some shops, they were too not crowded, and of course everyone was with Masks.

Busy meeting point.

Nothing pretty about this place (think British New Town!), but seems to attract lots of people due to its tranport links and it is very centrally located. Many places to eat and drink. Many nice restaurants just a few minutes walk from the square, passing the Berlin Town Hall (lovely old red brick building and the only nice one here) on your left, and another 100-150m. The Tv tower overlooks the square and the world clock provides the other landmark.

very lovely
Aug 2020
by the time me and my friends were there there was some specific event going on, lots of beer, sausages, music and fun. We were not supposed to go there but then somehow found ourselves spending an afternoon there. Also nice shops with souvenirs and stuff.

Epic square
Aug 2020 • Solo
Big old square, with place to hang out near the great old fountain, make a selfie at the world clock, shop in the Galeria or Alexa, have a kebab. Epic place, historically significant.

Allesandersplatz
Aug 2020
The surroundings of the Alexanderplatz are influenced by several construction works, for instance the new underground line number 5. At a building the Germans called it the Allesandersplatz which describes very well the situation.
