Brandenburg Gate

Berlin, Germany
4.9 / 120
An important architectural monument of Berlin with special symbolic significance. In 1871 a solemn procession of Prussian regiments passed through the gates, which marked the proclamation of the German Empire. In 1933, the famous Nazi torchlight procession took place here and the "Millennium Reich" was proclaimed. After World War II, the Brandenburg Gate became the border of the division of Germany into West and East.
Address:Pariser Platz, Berlin



Incredible monument that is much more intimidating and beautiful in person. A lot of history has passed through this gate and it’s easy to feel the weight of it when you’re there. It’s probably the most recognisable piece of Berlin .. Read more »
My second time here, the first being in summer, and it's still a lovely sight to behold. Barring the sea of people that come and go, there's nothing spectacular besides the Gate. It is difficult to take pictures without having people in the.. Read more »
Another historical site not to be forgotten. The Wall was right there as well and there are the demarcation lines of the Wall that you would be able to see. Just be careful of those touts asking for assistance . It's a must visit attraction tha.. Read more »
From one side it’s just a huge, spectacular gate by a road. On the other you have loads of touristy stuff to see and do. This was the busiest of any of the tourist locations in Berlin but it wasn’t too busy (October visit).
Without a doubt, one of the greatest historical sites in Europe. Truly a majestic gate, with rich history. Seeing it restored to its former glory after the devastation it suffered during the Second World War is an unexplainable feeling. I’ve ex.. Read more »
It is a lot of very old stone cut and cleaned and placed in such an order that it is really good looking. Obviously it is a tourist must see and I hope people taking the pictures with it in frame look up the history of it. It is well worth checking.. Read more »
Very nice to visit in the summer. The sun is warm, the place around feels festive. There were lots of tourist and it was generally fun to look around and enjoy the sites. I joined a few tours and the history is very interesting too.
Massive place. Loads of space to stand in front of it. Completely free. I'd recommend going in the day, but also passing by at night as well. It is a different atmosphere at each time. In the evening there were more street performers playing mus.. Read more »
Iconic landmark. Always busy with tourists, difficult to get a clear photo. Even at night the place is busy. Easy to get to whether walking and talking in other wonderful views or public transport. One must see landmark in Berlin and Germany.

We went there on the light festival Eve, and it was the best experience we ever had. There are plenty of restaurants and bars near by, and you can enjoy the view of the water canal. Definitely recommend it
Great place in Berlin where almost every parade ends or passes by. Specially the New Year celebrations are really good. You need to reach the gate by 7 and carry stuff which you cab use to spread and sit.
Beautiful site! It was nice to see that there was a very big space without cars where you can easily take pictures. You’ll find lots of other friendly tourists and it’s definitely located in a very nice part of the city. If you want someo.. Read more »
Big gate, one of the things it's good to see at some point in your life, plenty of history here. Relaxed atmosphere and many coffee shops around the square. Possible to bike or walk, but not drive through.
A great photographic opportunity. Hopefully you don't have some basically naked man in front of it getting in the way of some good photos like we did. But it inspired us to get a little bit creative tho. We also come back to get some night shots.. Read more »

Historic site of Berlin, built by the King of Prussia to close the city of Berlin. There were other gates but this gave access to the main (and most beautiful) avenue in the city. Subsequently, after the Second World War, it was on the famous "d.. Read more »
My father and I saw this fabulous monument on the second day of our trip to Berlin, Germany ?? in June 2012. It's probably one of the most popular attractions in Germany ??! We're the visitors from Dublin, Ireland ??
The gate was built at the request of the King of Prussia. Inside the door are sculptures from the baroque period. The door was very glamorous. It is one of the must-see places in Berlin. I definitely recommend you to see it when the lights are on in .. Read more »

I enjoyed the location. It is a crowded area as it’s a major historical landmark. Loads of food options and a subway stop is next to it, so helpful for me because I like to take public transport around cities I visit.
Awesome place to see. Full of historical sites all around. Some where even free. With it outside and nice weather you can enjoy and social distance. Check it out!
