Alexanderplatz © visitBerlin / Koch
Alexanderplatz is one of the most famous squares in Berlin and certainly the largest. Named after the Russian Czar Alexander I, who visited the capital of Prussia in 1805, “Alex” became a traffic hub when a train station was established there in 1882. The construction of the Central Market Hall (1886) and Tietz department store between 1904 to 1911 transformed Alexanderplatz into one of the main shopping areas of Berlin. It was even made famous in 1929 by Alfred Doblin’s classic novel “Berlin Alexanderplatz.”
