Top sights in Berlin
Alexanderplatz, a large square in central Berlin, was once the main commercial meeting point of Berlin's Socialist sector. Today it's one of the city's main transport stations and shopping centers. It comes as no surprise that there's a lot to see and do around there!
Standing proudly at 368 meters, the TV Tower is an iconic example of East German architecture and ranks as the tallest structure in Berlin - and, in fact, all of modern-day Germany. Book a tour here to get a truly extraordinary view over the city. You can even go all our and have dinner in the revolving restaurant!
Berlin's city hall is located just near Alexanderplatz. Distinguished by its red brick, the original building was heavily bombed during World War II. Following renovations, it became the seat of the East Berlin senate.
Unlike many other European capital cities, Berlin's streets are not lined with quaint, old-world buildings, but the Nikolaikirche is one of the exceptions. It was originally built in the 13th century and is now primarily a museum.
This eccentric clock displays the time in different parts of the world and was designed by Erich John, and constructed by Hans-Joachim Kunsch. It makes an appearance in many modern German films, such as "Run Lola Run".
From April to November, you can jump 125 meters from Alexanderplatz's Park Inn Hotel. Do it if you dare!
It's a popular attraction, so it's important to book your TV Tower visit at least a few days in advance. Please also note that due to minimal elevator facilities, there is no wheelchair access to the Tower.
Although there are no barriers, the public transit system is not free! Undercover ticket controllers operate on trains, trams, and buses. After buying your ticket at one of the machines at each stop, don't forget to stamp it for validation. Don't get caught without a ticket - buy a Welcome Card, which also gives you discounts in certain museums.
Berlin is a pretty spread-out city - not only because of its former East/West division, but also because it grew out of several villages. Each district has a distinct character - if you want to get deeper into local life, plan for a day in each one.
Berlin has been the stage of a lot of dark history, and you'll notice there are various memorials and other sites commemorating these events. If you visit these, remember to be quiet and respectful so as not to upset locals and other visitors.

What people are saying about Alexanderplatz
Absolutely fantastic. Such a great atmosphere! We got there early so the host told us to sit on the front row sofas! Had free shot tickets as we walked in and then more on the break! Very friendly crowd and funny comedians, and plenty of drinks!
Well worth the money. Get to see all the main landmarks of Berlin whilst learning lots on the way. I recommend the walking tour, best part of the experience! You get to learn things you would of missed, such as Hitlers Bunker!
I had an amazing experience in Berlin as well. Have already booked for New York and Dubai and I won’t change for any other company. This is the only Bus with a live Guide. The service is excellent.
It was not easy to get the tickets at Alexander plats but once that was done it was easy to get around the city. As there were so many places that I wanted to see the easy city pass was useful.
Berlin lohnt sich ein Besuch mit Familien oder Freunde. Die Stadt verbergen eine aufregend Geschichte. Zweite Weltkrieg, Kaltkrieg, die Mauer Berlin und viel mehr.
