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.

Such a great place to visit especially when it's Christmas with all the markets on. Great atmosphere all around even though it was freezing it was great to take in the culture!

This is the main area for shops and restaurants and is great if you want the main shops - good selection of restaurants but try going off the main centre for more ecelectic shopping

A couple of Starbucks, a department store, a primark, a TKmaxx, a big square of concrete, a fountain that has no water. That pretty much sums up Alexanderplatz. Berlin (the old East side) does not do public squares very well.

Akexanderplatz is an excellent place to stay while staying in Berlin with everything you need. You can travel around the city for 7€ for a day ticket or 2.60€ for a single journey. Plenty of places to eat and drink and beware of the trams.

Alexanderplatz is a must see attraction in Berlin as recommended by guide books and online websites. Well I was there last night 01/03/2019 ~ 1900 hrs. Its like any big plaza full of shops that you'll find in any large city. However One thing sticks...More

Central Berlin and a jumble of concrete blocks a real throwback to East Germany.Now full of chain stores....usual suspects like Decathlon,Macdonalds,TK Max..... Not much to like here but visit to get a sense of how the high rise flats looked like before the wall came...More

This looks a bit dated however if you like shopping and fancy a change from sightseeing then this is the place to go. There are lots of shops and places to eat nearby. Worth a visit for a couple of hours

all very nice and pretty. Loads of shops such as trainer shops, primark and the small main mall area. The food court is also very nice having a variety of places to eat. Worth going to

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).
