Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Reviews - Write a Review
We took an early morning walk in Berlin in October and passed by this magnificent gate with the sunrise. As the streets were empty it was easy to imagine how this gate has played an important role in the city's history thru out the centuries. Fun fact: In 1806 Napoleon took the statue on top of Brandenburg Tor as war trophy back with him to Paris. Berlin didn't get it back until 1814 when Napoleon was defeated.
This place is incredibly beautiful! The best Germany can offer you from its History. Good time to visit is at dusk. If you are a fan of Sniper Elite game, then this place is for you! You will feel accomplished.
The Brandenburg Gate is a wonderful place to visit especially in the evening -. you will find musical shows especially on weekends, people dancing. It has become a symbol of freedom and joy. The Brandenburg Gate is more than 200 years old. It was built by the Prussian king Frederick William II during 1788-1791. When Berlin wall fallen down in 1989, the Gate became a major place of celebrations by German Nation.
The Brandenburg gate is a zero cost landmark that is well worth visiting. It's important that you either have a guide to talk about the history of the gate or that you read up on it yourself prior to visiting as you'll want to look at the sculpture on top with full knowledge of the "French connection". The hotel next to the gate is also well worth a look as it's a very high security building used by royalty, presidents and other leaders and stars from around the world. It's also the site of Michael Jackson's famous "baby-dangling" incident. On the other side of the gate are the markers showing where the wall was and some great views of other Berlin landmarks.
Rather busy in the middle of he day, lost of tourists and a tourist bus blocking anyone from getting a good photo. Nice band playing though. Went for a run from nearby hostel and arrived around 7:30am, only a few people around and so provided a nice photo opportunity. Highly recommend visiting at a time with no tourists.
