Brandenburg Gate was built in the 18th century as a defining symbol of the city, but it ended up in the middle of the no-man’s land separating East and West Germany for the better part of the 20th century. Today, this impressive monument epitomizes European unification and continued peace. It often serves as an attractive backdrop for special events, such as concerts. Architect Carl Gotthard Langhans designed the triumphal arch, finding inspiration in classical Greek architecture. He chose this spot to serve as the entry into the city’s renowned boulevard of linden trees. Artist Johan Gottfried Schadow’s sculpture of a winged goddess commanding a chariot crowns the gate.

One of the most Popular tourist attraction in Berlin. You will find many cafes, restaurant and entertaining activities which are carried out at the destination. Visit during day, has many attraction at the place. But I specially like the place during the night. The lights make it look beautiful. The place being popular is always crowded with tourist so photographers may sometimes find it difficult to capture a perfect photo
A truly wonderful experience to walk in this historic place. As I always hear from others that it would be always crowded and you might not be able to enjoy taking pictures, however in January I think it's fine you could enjoy it. I missed going there at night, they say it's better while it's lit up. But it's was also fine during the day. All in all, definitely a good place to start your Berlin trip with.
