Alexanderplatz, a large square in central Berlin, was once the main commercial meeting point of Berlin's Socialist sector. Today it's one of the city's main transport stations and shopping centers. It comes as no surprise that there's a lot to see and do around there!
Standing proudly at 368 meters, the TV Tower is an iconic example of East German architecture and ranks as the tallest structure in Berlin - and, in fact, all of modern-day Germany. Book a tour here to get a truly extraordinary view over the city. You can even go all our and have dinner in the revolving restaurant!
Berlin's city hall is located just near Alexanderplatz. Distinguished by its red brick, the original building was heavily bombed during World War II. Following renovations, it became the seat of the East Berlin senate.
Unlike many other European capital cities, Berlin's streets are not lined with quaint, old-world buildings, but the Nikolaikirche is one of the exceptions. It was originally built in the 13th century and is now primarily a museum.
This eccentric clock displays the time in different parts of the world and was designed by Erich John, and constructed by Hans-Joachim Kunsch. It makes an appearance in many modern German films, such as "Run Lola Run".
From April to November, you can jump 125 meters from Alexanderplatz's Park Inn Hotel. Do it if you dare!
It's a popular attraction, so it's important to book your TV Tower visit at least a few days in advance. Please also note that due to minimal elevator facilities, there is no wheelchair access to the Tower.
Although there are no barriers, the public transit system is not free! Undercover ticket controllers operate on trains, trams, and buses. After buying your ticket at one of the machines at each stop, don't forget to stamp it for validation. Don't get caught without a ticket - buy a Welcome Card, which also gives you discounts in certain museums.
Berlin is a pretty spread-out city - not only because of its former East/West division, but also because it grew out of several villages. Each district has a distinct character - if you want to get deeper into local life, plan for a day in each one.
Berlin has been the stage of a lot of dark history, and you'll notice there are various memorials and other sites commemorating these events. If you visit these, remember to be quiet and respectful so as not to upset locals and other visitors.

What People Are Saying About Alexanderplatz
Skip the long queue & go straight to the observation deck. We started early and had excellent choice of views. Definitely worth the extra funds...
The tower is situated in a very busy part of Berlin with lots of shops and eateries. If you do not book beforehand you will queue for a while to get in. The view is fantastic and probably the best time to visit is between 12 and 2 pm when hopefully it is clear enough to see for miles.
Would always use again to book tickets. Saved us at least 2 hours. We had a 3 hour pass booked a table and had a great meal. You have to do this if you come to Berlin. 10/10. Thanks
Tour was very interesting, showing lot's of locations. I would highly recommend this tour as you get to know a lot about Berlins recent history.
our family booked the trabi limo tour with Sebastian for an evening after we were all exhausted from a day seeing "serious" sights. within minutes of meeting Sebastian and climbing into the, very funky and cool, trabi limo our mood was uplifted and we were chatting and laughing as Sebastian drove us around explaining the history of the various sights we were passing. The pace was perfect, very leisurely, and Sebastian,s commentary the perfect, enthusiastic, knowledgeable complement. There was always time to stop for a longer view or to take a photo, pace was such that we could open the panoramic sunroofs and stand up for good stretches without freezing in December, and just being in the trabi was fun, like a vintage stretched out toy car that was the center of attention as we tooled around. It was great fun for the 4 of us and certainly a highlight of our visit.
