Alexanderplatz Can Be Dangerous / Alexanderplatz Kann Ein Gefährlicher Ort Sein

Cowardly Murder May the Guilt
Eat at You Every Day
A popular destination for many people visiting Berlin is Alexanderplatz, a place to shop, eat, drink, and people watch. However, the recent murder of twenty-year old, Jonny K., by seven young men illustrates, that after dark, Alexanderplatz can be a dangerous place.


Overall, Germany is relatively safe, but mix alcohol and young men, and anything is likely to occur. This particularly brutal slaying has shocked even the most apathetic Berliner, and there has been an outpouring of commiseration.
