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

With all the buildings surrounding the Brandenburg Gate plus a lot of tourists, it can get claustrophobically crowded at times. Don't get me wrong, you must see it if you come to Berlin, but you'll only stay there for a little while and move on, cause there's not much to do/see.

starting a site seeing Journey from here is actually a pretty good place to begin, it has the Brandenburger Tor there, all tours start from this point too, it has it busy moments, but it is also rich with history, with some information boards surroundimg the platz gives you a small idea as too what the importance of the Pariser...

Many negative reviews have been written about this location. And yes it can be full of tourists, but take a breather, sit down get a coffee and watch the world go by. Great for people watching.

There's so much history surrounding this There's so much history surrounding this square and I think it is pretty much hard to avoid not coming here as the Brandenburg Gate (which is a must) is situated here. Aside from the Brandenburg gate there are the American and French Embassies and the DZ bank. If you want to know a bit... More

The Pariser platz is worth a visit, but there just isn't much too see other than the Branderburg gate or Hotel Adlon. A quarter-hour visit is long enough, to be honest. There's a starbucks at the end of the square if you want to sit down and get a cup of coffee. You can also walk down Unter den Linden... More
