A large public square and transport hub in the central Berlin Mitte district, Alexanderplatz is one of the capital’s most iconic landmarks. Home to shopping malls, streets artists, drug addicts and middle- to upper-class families, the Alex and its larger neighbourhood nicely (and sometimes shockingly) represent the extremely diverse mixture of people living and loving in Berlin. The world clock and TV tower are probably its most famous accessories and whilst I usually prefer other parts of the city, Alexanderplatz and its concrete buildings offer great photographic landscapes for Black and White photography. This place is one of Berlin’s many beating hearts and has a vibrant feel to it. Still, on a hot summer’s day, I’d recommend some of the greener spots in Berlin.
