Scenes from Berlin – 06

Alexanderplatz is the heart of the old East Berlin and still a major transport hub. It is showing its age – the transformation hasn’t reached it yet. The square is pretty bleak. The TV tower lurks nearby. That is one of the fascinations of Berlin – the old is but a step away from the exciting new. And Alexanderplatz still has a kind of retro splendour.



Forlorn fountain.





Can’t escape the modern though…


About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love outside work: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. And anything else that I happen to think is worth writing about!
