Alexanderplatz found literary fame through the 1929 novel Berlin Alexanderplatz by Alfred Döblin (adapted by Rainer Werner Fassbinder into a hugely successful TV series in 1980), but was almost totally destroyed during WWII. It was rebuilt in the late 60s, and in 1969 the World Clock was added.

Don’t make plans quite yet to check in to the ‘Hotel Brecker, Kurfurstendamm 288’, where Bourne begins to remember his disastrous first mission – to kill Russian politician Neski. Although there’s no such hotel, there are plans to turn the location used, Haus Cumberland, Kurfurstendamm 193, into a luxury hotel (some time in 2010).

Bourne takes the train to Moscow, arriving at Moscow Kievskiai rail station (the real thing, which serves the Ukraine), but the ‘Moscow’ disco, where Yuri finds Kirill to inform him that Bourne is still alive, is the, now closed, Cafe Moskau, Karl Marx Allee 34 (part of the Kino International complex) in, yes, Berlin.

Part of the subsequent car chase is indeed Moscow, but much was still Berlin, in the suburb of Potsdam, and on Karl Marx Allee, which was covered in snow. The final crash is at the Potsdamer Platz exit to Berlin’s Tiergarten Tunnel.
