Alexanderplatz is one of the most emblematic squares in Berlin. It’s a very importnat center of communications and transponts of the German capital although it was created for hosting a cattle market until the end of the 19th century. The current square was designed by the former DDR rulers in the 60’s and nowadays it’s always full of people eating, buying, walking or simply having a beer or a coffee.

If you walk to Alexanderstrasse 9 you will see the great mosaic in the Haus des Lehrers (the Teachers’ House).

There are some daily pictures in this mosaic in which we can noice a teacher rounded by his four pupils. He marks a point in Africa in a globe meanwhile two students look through a microscope and a telescope, another observes the liquid in a test tube and there is another listening teacher’s lesson. In the background, we can see a Pythagoras theorem in the blackboard.

The rest of the mosaic is wonderful. It’s a pity that it was only a propagandistic set of pictures!
