The original Alexanderplatz (affectionately known as 'Alex' by Berliners) was completely flattened during the War. Its present day appearance is a prime example of East German town planning: a huge, windswept pedestrian area surrounded by featureless 1960s high-rises. But those who are familiar with Alexanderplatz from Alfred Döblin's novel of the same name will find that none of the hustle and bustle of the square has disappeared. Alexanderplatz is still very much a commuters' thoroughfare and is regarded by locals as the true center of Berlin. Named after Russian Tsar Alexander I who visited the Prussian capital in 1805, Alexanderplatz was at the center of the mass-demonstrations which brought the Berlin Wall tumbling down in November 1989. Massive redevelopment has begun under the direction of architect Hans Kohlhoff.
If you get chance go up the TV Tower to the revolving restaurant. The views are great all over Berlin, as long as the weather is good. The restuarant is very much in a 1970's theme with all the decor and menu. I think this is more a lack of updating rather than a 70's themed restaurant. From the top of the tower you can plan a route through the city and see all the people in the platz below looking like little ants. Get to the tower early as the queues build up, especially around lunch time.
