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.

If you enjoy history and wanna feel yourself part of it you definitely have to visit this place in Berlin. It's amazing location. We've been there in October it was really crowded and difficult to make good photos,but we did)
A really unique place . Don't need to say that it's a must go if you are in Berlin. During the night there is this light show sometimes as it can be seen in the picture , during the show the gate is illuminated and becomes alive. The place is really full of tourists, so go early if you want to get close to the gate during the light show
Again another must when in Berlin. After picture time, take a moment to realize you are literally standing in a place where history has been made. Access to the monument is easy: it’s right next to a train station, buses are close by, tour buses stop there and you can even walk from the Holocaust memorial (about a 7-minute walk from there). It’s also impossible to miss because the US embassy is right next to it.
Iconic landmark in Berlin. I visited this place during the day but it was so crowded, no good pictures can be taken. So I decided to visited again at night, and turns out that the Gate's view is even better at night (less crowded, warm-lighting from the gate). Another iconic landmarks in Berlin can be reached easily by foot from this gate.
Iconic landmark of Berlin. You cannot miss it. To appreciate it a bit more, go to the information that's on a stand behind it. It is in different languages and it really lets you understand better what the big fuss is about.
