The most impressive place I visited in Berlin, no doubt! You can almost feel history down here, which is a gift when you surrender to that at the spot. A place not only for sightseeing, but for sightfeeling too!

The most noteworthy thing iMO was an exhibit on street which described the square as the place where the Nazi's did their thing ie hold lots of self-congratulatory parades. Otherwise its a good place to rip around on your bike and practise tourist-slalom - and believe me there'll be lots of tourists here. It's basically a square separating embassies and... More

Great square to visit the Brandenburg Gate. Hotel Adlon is just there (the infamous place where Michael Jackson held the baby from the balcony). The US embassy is located next to the gate at the square. There's a dunkin donut, Haagen Dazs and some other cafés.

This square is to the east of the gate and provides lots of opportunity to take pictures of the gate, of the square and of the Embassies and the Hotel Adlon that are around it. Nice atmosphere. Lots of people but also lots of room for them.

Pariser Platz is a square in the centre of Berlin, located at the end of the Unter den Linden, in front of the Brandenburger Tor, which was built in 1790. At that time the square was nameless and just called 'square'. But after Napoleon was defeated and Paris was captured in 1814, the square was renamed ' Pariser Platz', in... More

Brandenburger Tor S & U-Bahn stations open directly onto Pariser Platz. During the day it is crowded with tourists trying to get the perfect shot of the Brandenburg Gate. There aren't enough places to sit and appreciate the square, it's more of a place to take a photo then move on. It sits at the head of Unter den Linden... More

beautiful, lively, active, and full of intersting things. From this square you can see everything from the parisian and american embassies, to the historical brandenburg tor built in the 1700's to the hotel adlon where michael jackson dangled his child over the balcony. The square is easily accessibly via public transportation and by foot and is surrounded byu stores, restaurants,... More

Pariser Platz was one of our favourite squares in Berlin. Easy S-Bahn access and very pretty. It is packed full of tourists taking photos of Brandenburg Gate and surrounding buildings. I found there was a lack of seating to sit down and take in the atmosphere, a few more should be added. When we were there, there was a giant... More

If you visit the Brandenburg Gate you almost cannot help but visit Pariser Platz. This beautiful square stood isolated behind the Berlin Wall, accessible from neither side though technically it was in the east. Now buildings have been restored or new ones built in the place of the old and it hums with life. It tends to be full of... More
