Alexanderplatz is a large public square and transportation intersection in the central Mitte district, near the Fernsehturm. Locals often refer to the square as just "Alex." Though it has been called by other names and had several purposes, its name today is in rememberence of the visit of Czar Alexander I. in 1805.
