The Alexanderplatz, or “Alex” as it is called by the locals, is Berlin’s busiest public square and a central meeting spot for people from all walks of life. The site of several upheavals throughout history and almost completely destroyed during World War II, the square was rebuilt in the typical style of the GDR. Today, it is a bustling traffic hub where punks rub shoulders with bankers that never disappoints when it comes to serving up a fascinating slice of life.
Due to the many attractions and sights – among them the TV tower, the world clock, the Fountain of International Friendship, and countless stores and restaurants – just a short walk away, this is the perfect beginning of any sightseeing tour into the bustling heart of Berlin.
