Alexanderplatz is a famous square in the east of Berlin. It is also a major transport hub, with a number of U-Bahn, S-Bahn, Tram and Bus lines running through it.
Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Alexanderplatz was the center of East German Berlin. As such, there are a number of old communist style buildings around the square, making it not one of the city's prettiest. However, it none the less gives you an idea of how things were like during the times of the GDR.
The square is close to the Fernsehturm, the second tallest structure in Europe, and gives a good view of the tower.
One of the interesting features of Alexanderplatz is the Weltzeituhr, or World Time Clock, which rotates to show the different times around the world.
