Alexanderplatz & the Seasons

We’ve been back in Germany for a good year and a half now. Reason enough to look back and dig out a whole bunch of pictures. Today, I invite you to have a look at Berlin Alexanderplatz.  If you ever feel like people watching, this is certainly the place to go. Alexanderplatz will always offer an unusual sight or two.

These days tourists meet in front of Primark rather than the World Time Clock.

Prizes of Bratwurst are increasing steadily.

Every other month or so Alexanderplatz turns into a big market. It is really more the tourist trappy kind and if you are looking for a real Berliner Currywurst you may die trying.

Last Christmas Market didn’t turn out very festive.

Does this kind of police presence actually make you feel any safer?

Spring came and is it just me or does the Easter Market look like a recycled Oktoberfest Christmas?

While the markets on Alexanderplatz are more or less temporary, honestly, what on earth is wrong with this picture?
