Breathtaking monument

This place should be visited once you are in Berlin. It's next to the massive park, and the most spectacular sightseeings

Must see
Aug 2021 • Friends
Te Brandenburg Gate is the most recognized symbol of Berlin, so you have to see it. I highly recommend that you walk west of the gate a couple hundred meters to see the spot where Ronald Reagan told Gorbachev to tear down the wall!

Iconic view
Aug 2021
Like it or not, this is an iconic image of Berlin. The Gate now stands alone and is usually busy with tourists. It is lit up at night although I didn't see any information boards about the structure when we walked around it.
Built in the late 18th century the Gate was influenced by the Acropolis and the four horse chariot on top of it echoes Roman and Byzantine sculpture. In the Cold War the gate was a border between the Russian and British zones.
It's easy to get to and well signposted although also a focus of protests - when we were there the whole area was barricaded off for most of the weekend.

It's not Berlin Without a Visit to the Brandenberg Gate!
Aug 2021
I always enjoy a visit to the Branden Gate. I've seen it a number of times before, but it holds a special place in my love of Berlin! This is a must see!

The iconic landmark of Berlin
Jul 2021
This historic city gate from 1791 is one of Berlin’s most famous symbols and attractions. It is a must-see place for every tourist.

On the east side of the gate is a square called Pariser Platz. From there starts Berlin’s long west-east boulevard Unter den Linden.
