Very easy and convenient to reach. A must see in Berlin especially if you are running short on time. Would not regret making a trip here as it's surrounded by many other sites as well. Good starting point for a Berlin day tour.

It was a beautiful day when we visited and our tour guide told a nice story about the monument. Once you are in Berlin you need to see it, but this is it. and from the back we could watch the semi final:)

We walked by the gate on our way to the parliament. It was a very touristy spot, and while we are happy we stopped for some photos, it was busy and crowded. See it if you can, but don’t make it the main attraction.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
