The Alexanderplatz is a public square and transport hub in the city of Berlin in Germany. The square was used a military exercise ground and place for farmers to sell their products in the 19th century but became a major transport junction after the opening of the railway in the 1880s. It also became busy with the opening of a market close by up until the second world war where it was largely destroyed. Since then the square has been rebuilt with the area and has become pedestrianised with roads and trains running around it. Shopping centres, restaurants, offices and bars have opened around the square and made it a place to meet up and socialise again.
To get to the square take the U-Bahn or the M48 bus to ‘Alexanderplatz’.
