“impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We visited Berlin during the festival of lights and this as well as other significant building and statues had light displays on them during the night which were good. The gate has a square were food and drink is more expensive I'd recommend taking a walk and getting a cheaper deal. The square was always busy and we used this central point to help us navigate the city

“Been There - Seen That - Check it off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

It's so famous that a visit to Berlin that didn't include a pass-by the gate wouldn't be complete. Even Napoleion had to march through it! So go. Don't expect anything more than the gate though.

A lot of people gathering to see and be seen. During all day there are street entertainers and sometimes concerts.

“a place to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The Brandenburg Gate is a place to see when your in Berlin. Just think about all the history that happen at the Brandenburg Gate. When I got to see it up close for the first time, It was stunning. And I was there to race the Berlin Marathon 2013, and I ran throught the Brandenburg Gate for the last 200 meters of the race.

“A very busy attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Very busy around the Gate. Difficult to get a photo without someone on it but definitely would not miss it.
