Alexanderplatz is one of the most important squares in Berlin

Alexanderplatz, affectionately called "Alex", is one of the most important squares in Berlin. It is the largest inner-city square in Germany.

It is ruled by Berlin's highest tower, the television tower. The World Time Clock, in the middle of the square has already been a popular meeting place in the East and always will be.
Alexanderplatz is one of the most important traffic junctions in the capital. Everything rolls here. Many S + U railway lines, regional train, bus and tram lines. The square itself may only be used by pedestrians, so more than 300,000 people visit Alexanderplatz every day.
Many shops invite you to shop, such as Galeria Kaufhof and the Alexa. Not to forget Primark.

Brief history of Berlin's Alexanderplatz

On the occasion of the visit of Tsar Alexander in 1805, King Frederick William III gave the "Alexanderplatz" its name. In the past, the square was used by the military as a parade and parade ground and there was trade on the square. Alexanderplatz has repeatedly been the scene of historical events, such as the March Revolution of 1848, and street battles took place.

Here, too, the Second World War left its devastating traces. It was almost destroyed in the fighting in April 1945. Not to forget the peaceful demonstrations against the GDR regime in autumn 1989. A competition in spring 1964 gave the square its current shape. It was freed from traffic and made more interesting for pedestrians.
