    Ossi sqaure with a Wessi feel

    by jglsongs Written Jul 28, 2004

    Alexanderplatz, once the heart of DDR Berlin, stands out now in a sleek city of steel and glass as one of the last, East Bloc sqaures in the city. The Weltzeituhr (World Clock) is still a good meeting place and photo op, and the Kaufhof (dept. store) still dominates the square.

    The central place of east Berlin

    by drei3t Updated Oct 5, 2004

    This is the place that once was the pride of the late DDR. You can still meet here people that lived in the east Berlin, just hanging out and drinking beer in the weekend evenings. Check also the TV tower for great views over the city. There are lots of nice bars in the surroundings: up north is Prenzlauer Berg, a bit west Hackescher Markt and Oranienburgerstrasse.

    In the far view is Fernsehturn tower that sits in middle of Alexander Plaz. It is 1300 feet high. No pics of platz taken by us. It is named for Alexander of Russia. It is a progressive

    Landmark in distance to get to the plaz

    This museum I found close to our hotel on Alexanderplatz. If you like moto. I think it would be very interesting to visit this small moto-museum.

    The World Clock in Alexanderplatz is a famous structure, which displays the time in various cities around the world.

    It's 9 am in Dublin!

    This is a square stretching from the TV Tower to the Spree river. The centre is filled with a staue of Marx & Engels added in 1986. This provides plenty of photo opportunities.

    Where the East meets the West ... Alexander Platz. You can climb ontop of the Telecom tower (ok there's a lift as well ;-) but it's not a so stunning one ...

    Probably most known part of the Berlin, with the symbol of the city - the TV tower - and with the clock showing the time all around the world.
    From the TV tower there is nice view of the city.

    The Centre of Berlin, during the divide in the city this was largely dead, but has been revitalized in recent years.

    An open square in the centre. It didn't impress me, but a lot of people I know thought it was great.

    This lovely church is on one of the sides of Alexanderplatz.

    We didn't make it inside on this trip. Maybe next time.

    Alexander Platz; square to visit

    by jeoren Written Jul 14, 2005

    Alexander Platz is in the very centre of Berlin. From this place, you have a view at the TV-tower, you can walk to the city hall or do some shoppings
