5 Unmissable Attractions Around Berlin Alexanderplatz

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!

  • TV Tower

    1. TV Tower

    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!

  • Rotes Rathaus

    2. Rotes Rathaus

    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.

  • Nikolaikirche

    3. Nikolaikirche

    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.

  • Weltzeituhr

    4. Weltzeituhr

    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".

  • Base flying from the Park Inn

    5. Base flying from the Park Inn

    From April to November, you can jump 125 meters from Alexanderplatz's Park Inn Hotel. Do it if you dare!

Planning Your Visit

  • TV Tower tickets

    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.

  • Public transport

    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.

  • Planning

    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.

  • Respect

    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.

We hadden een hele goede gids, Jamie uit Ierland, die al 5 jaar in Berlijn woont en studeert. Hij vertelde boeiend en wist het vehaal over de muur en de koude oorlog ook voor mijn twee pubers goed over te brengen. Zeker de moeite waard!

We have loved the experience. A treatment of 10 for the service and a wonderful and quality dinner together with the experience of being 300 meters high with all of Berlin at your feet.

What a wonderful experience to have Berlin City from the top at night. We will back to this place during the day to have different view.

Booked at short notice and still everything worked out wonderfully! Gladly again!

Very interesting excursion and above all a very nice guide!
