The World Clock on Alexanderplatz in Berlin is for me one of the most beautiful remains of the former GDR. It symbolizes how close the places on the world are. And if you take a long enough exposure, you get a feeling that it’s possible to travel a bit through time and space.
The World Clock has been erected in 1969 and since then has become a classical meeting point. Me and my friends, we often used to “meet at the World Time Clock” before heading out for drinks. I mean, it’s somewhat logical. It’s hard to miss and it’s located on a wide open space, so even if all youth of Berlin is meeting there, you’ll still find each other.
From here you also have a great view on the TV Tower, but I chose to shoot the opposite direction instead. I just loved the dynamic of the passing tram along with the couple that clearly had chosen the World Clock as a meeting point as well.
