This panorama depicts the southwest and south facade of the Alexanderplatz (also called Alex) in Berlin with the Weltzeituhr (world time clock) in its middle. Starting on the left we first see the business house die mitte on the eastside of Alexander Square. Next is the Alexanderhaus on the southside, which takes a 60° turn after three quarters which is invisible in this panorama. Its sister building following the world time clock is the Berolinahaus on the southwest side of the square. Then we see the Fernsehturm (TV tower) in the back before we finnish at the former Centrum Warenhaus, which today houses the Galeria Kaufhof, on the northwest side.
Alexander– and Berolinhaus are the only buildings on the square that survived the second world war. The world time clock was errected in 1969 and designed by Erich John. It represents all 24 time zones of the earth mentioning 148 cities all over the world and showing a rotating model of the solar system on top.
