  Brunnen der Freundschaft
by Bigs

You might know the book....
This has been the heart of the East GDR shopping dreams....at least for us "Wessies" In GDR times the Centrum department store was the biggest in this communist country.
We liked it to spend our 25 Marks we had to change a the border on our class trip in 87. Most of us bought GDR flags I think.

The Square is still home of many departement stores etc... You also find Burger King here...and a great bookstore at on edge of the Square...you might want to by some Berlin books here....
It looks like a second hand bookstore, but it isn´t!

Another "highlight" is this Brunnen der Freundschaft (Fountain of Friendship) in the middle of the square.....
