This is a gate which was earlier built between the borders of East and West Berlin and stands majestically tall. It is next to the main Reichstag Building. There are lots of embassies around. During the visit live music preparation was in progress.

Saw this as part of a tour. Lots of history in Berlin and this gate really stands out as one of the most recognisable sites.

If visiting Berlin you should take a walk to see this neo-classical monument that has been in this position since 1791 and significant as a division into East and West Germany. There were quite a lot of tourists there when we visited but it is still possible to take a few photos that do not contain crowds! (We then carried on to the Memorial To The Jews, the Topography of Terror and Checkpoint Charlie – all within easy walk of the Gate).

Brandenburg Gate is an impressive historical monument that you can find in any large city across Europe.

Yes, there were a lot of important historical events that took place here, and, yes, it is a good spot for photos.

However, the surrounding area, especially Alexanderplatz, is nothing special.

Built in 1788-1791, has survived Napoleon stealing the quadriga (the statue on top), and World War II bombing. Great to see during the day, but best view take the U at night and as you come out a beautiful lit view.

If you want to take photo without people, I recommend you to go there at morning or evening, this place is so crowded at a daytime.
