If you are after a quiet Berlin square, then this is probably not for you. Quite crowded even in the day time and if you are after Christmas markets there are others around which are quieter and offer a good range of food and gifts.

I was in Berlin for 1 month and I went to Alexanderplatz for shopping 10 times at that month! There were so many clothing/shoes/... brands, so many restaurants, so many street musicians & ..., so you really enjoy the time you spend there.

Alexanderplatz has a great variety of shops, selling both international and independent brands. There are a good variety of restaurants catering to different diets and styles of cuisine. The transport links are fantastic and there are sightseeing tours from open topped buses frequently.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
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
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
