Got the photo ! Suggest you get there early before the tour buses (as expected). The usual annoying ticket salesmen for buses and tours to avoid.

This is more a historical site. Its a "must see" but you wont be here for too long. There is an information sign to read but not too much to see.

The Brandenburg Gate is an absolute must see...at night. It is a remarkable symbol of freedom...and the ability of the German people to survive both the “short Austrian” (as many Germans call him) and the Soviet occupation.

The Brandenburger Tor is (amongst others) known as the iconic building just across the border which seperated East and West in ealier decades. And of course, icons should be there. Read about Berliner Akzise Maur to get the whole picture of the “Tors” around Berlin...More

When in Berlin, I can’t imagine any reason for not visiting the Brandenburg Gate. We took the metro and exited at Potsdamer Platz and walked over, passing several other important historical sites along the way. Not something to be missed.

It depends on what tour you want to go on, but I would recommend Fat Tire Bike tours. They start at 11 am!

As the others have said there's no need to take a tour. We walked from our hotel to soak up the atmosphere and history and used our guide books and maps . There are numerous information boards around in different languages... More
