Tips from locals
5 min to walk from your flat guys. Visit the TV-Tower and the most popular clock in Europe - The World Clock. There is big shopping center ALEXA or you need a cheap high quality clothes than visit T.K.MAXX.
You gotta go there, even if you don't stand in line to go up in the tower. This is the center of East Berlin. Atmo!
Mostly favorite shopping area, it has a ton of history as well and is the home for frequent markets on different occasions.
The "Alex" is one of the most visited and best-known places in Berlin. Not only is the famous and widely visible television tower located here, the square itself has always been the scene of historical events
