Alexanderplatz is a large square in the centre-east of the city. It's had many transformations over the years - from market in the 1800s, to a bustling centre of nightlife in the 1920s, to a symbol of socialist might in the 1960s, to a centre for capitalism today. Worth a visit for the socialist-era buildings that surround the platz: the Fernsehturm, the Congress Centre, the Haus des Lehrers and the Reisebüro. The World Time Clock is also pretty impressive.

Alexanderplatz is a great place to get your bearings on Berlin. It is easily reachable by public transport and is easy to find because of the T.V tower. There are some excellent shopping malls and department stores just off the square as well as the Parkinn hotel, which is one of the tallest buildings in Berlin and if you go at the right time, you can base fly off the top of it for a fee!

Plenty of shopping, dining, and an edge of nightlife. We walked around this plaza on a frosty January evening to enjoy warm schnitzel, hot apple cider, and a pop into some stores for laid-back evening shopping. Or marvel at some of the renovated architecture: the Fountain of Eternal Friendship is a beautiful monument erected for post-war Germany - it stands in the square near a funky, space-like world clock.
