Attraction details
Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

Starting with the S-Bahn station, the whole area is a big letdown. Fortunately, there are other things to see in the area, as soon as you get away from this square.

I got to the square and thought I was missing something. I think the best thing that can be said about this place is that it is central. It's gritty but not in a good way. Potsdam Platz much nicer.

Plenty of bars and food stalls , loads of outdoor seating .Shops around the perimeter , carousel and free fall drop from one of the higher buildings. Right on tram line and U+S Bahn lines so easily accesible .
