Alexander I was the tsar of Russia, so when he visited Berlin in 1805 they gave his name to the square to honor him.
Alexanderplatz is dominated by the station with the same name and the Fernsehturm, the high TV tower. It used to be the main hub at former East Berlin and still is one of the main square of the city.
Every Sunday there is a flee market while you can always see street artists, musicians etc
We spend some time while waiting for some friends near the World Clock (pic 2) where you see the current time in all the time zones of the earth. It was built in 1969 and its big enough (10m high and 16 tons weight!). Check for your hometown. On top you can see a simple model of the solar system!
The clock was always a popular meeting point.
The surrounded area is full of shops, trams, buses and traffic, a lot of traffic?.
