Create an itinerary including Brandenburg Gate
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.

  • Nice to see lit up at night, I don't think it would be as brilliant in the daylight. The street around is spotless and there is no traffic, just a few people wandering around.

  • Touristic place in Berlin. It looks smaller in really life compare to what you can see in TV, and it should be more into the spotlight as it s an amazing construction. Mandatory stop in Berlin, especially the first time :) advise : remember to look up, the details are beautiful.
  • Iconic gate to photograph. Come for pictures and enjoy the specular art. It's not too far and a nice walk from other nearby attractions. There were also people blowing bubbles in the air to help you make your photos look beautiful.
