Impressive place to take a photo and see. It was really nice to see personally a place that I ever see in photos. It's a beatiful building full of history milestones.

What can I say, it’s the most iconic sight in Berlin. Doesn’t disappoint. Saw it in daylight and at night. Stunning. Always crowded in the vicinity though

If you visit Berlin, I would suggest don't use a car. You have to walk all those beautiful big Streets with the monuments, statues and buildings. The Brandenburg gate is one of them and all the area around. Early in the morning, or late at...More
