Brandenburg Gate - Review

Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor in German) marks a very prominent place on the cultural and historical map of Berlin. This beautiful triumphal arch stands at the end of the Unter den Linden Boulevard. It is considered a symbol of the extremely rich history of Germany. Not a part of the original fortifications, it is believed that it was set up to separate the regions. Although, it was constructed as a symbol of peace, it became like a portal for the people on both the sides while Germany was still separated. While in the past, it used to be an important symbol of the separation of Germany into east and West, today it is a powerful symbol of the unification due to its historical significance.

There is a beautiful quadriga sculptureon on top which represents the goddess of victory leading the 4 horses in the characteristic turquoise which is the reason behind it being such a famous landmark. The arch is lit up at night with golden and blue which is instantly appealing to the tourists. To really feel history come alive, the tourist must visit the Brandenburg gate and the area around it.

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Reviews

  • Obviously, it is the landmark of Berlin. If you come in different time, you'll get different felling. I recommend the tourist who has limited time come to visit during the night. The light is astounding! You can have a set of marvellous photos. But please remind yourself, bring a good camera, especially one can shot in low-light condition.

  • Amazing, simply amazing. If you're interested in German history, especially that of the Prussian empire, this is an essential visit. I'd recommend also seeing it at night, as well as the day. At night, there are significantly less people, and you get to see the Tor beautifully lit up.

  • One of the most beautiful architecture pieces I've seen. Nearby you can find other historical landmarks that are rather interesting such as the Holocaust memorial. The best time to visit is close to sunset, when you can see the monument light up and the streets are flooded with artists under its golden glow

  • The top place and also the most visited in Berlin. A beautiful gate with great history. Really well organized place and very clean. It's always crowded but I don't think it could be any different. Of course it's highly recommended to visit it and have some great photos. Don't forget to visit it also by night. It's beautifully lighted.

  • The Brandenburg Gate is one of the most famous sightseeing objects in Germany. I just can say that it is pretty impressive to see the dimensions of that huge gate. Great stop for doing an unforgettable picture of your Germany trip. If you have time, come back after the sunset to see the Brandenburg Gate illuminated.
