“Secret at Unter den Linden (next to Brandenburger Tor)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Check out the DZ Bank building. You can enter to the lobby and will see a Frank Gehry's masterpiece!
Great secret spot right next to Brandenburger Tor :)

“A must!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

This area is great to walk through and the gate is something to see. There are tons of entertainers on the street and different individuals dressed up for picture taking...of course they do charge, so have single euros with you. We negotiated, my teen daughter had to have a picture with dark vadder. There is also a welcome, info center right by the gate. We bought the Berlin card and found that it was cost effective, for our family. We used it throughout the whole trip. The gate is so beautiful....hard to believe that the Berlin Wall ran right through that area, so much history here. This is a must and I highly recommend!

“Iconic photos at The Brandenburg Gate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The entire area is full of touristy fun, bike rentals, ice cream vendors, postcards, and such stuff...but the sculptural and architectural grandeur of the gate still brings back the era in which it was built. A magnificent symbol for Germany.

“Somewhat underwhelming.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This monumental gate is definitely worth a walk by but compared to the Arc de Triumph in Paris for example it is not nearly so impressive. Also a bit unfortunate that buildings encroach it on both sides. It would probably be much more attractive it stood alone.

“Nice attraction even better after the sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We were there in the morning, afternoon and evening, just after the sunset (we spent the sunset in the Reichstag) and it was a wonderful place to see with the colors in the sky. True that we were in summer, so the sky was clear, but was pretty nice to see that combination sky-gate... gave a good feeling of relaxness in a city that I didn't find very relaxing.
