Very beautiful and it's the iconic place everyone must visit. Should visit during the evening to get a more amazing sunset view. Can be quite crowded.

If you want a picture of Brandenburg Gate, you'll be better off at night with a good low-light camera and maybe even a tripod. During the day there are simply too many people, buses, cars, etc around it to get a nice shot (unless you...More

A must-see sight, the Brandenburg Gate is as much historic as it is famous. It's a great place to see the majesty of the royals and the fantasies of Adolph Hitler. Truly a stately site of history.

Such an iconic structure that has been seen thousands of times on TV and film so cannot visit Berlin and not see it. Impressive and set amongst several embassies. Very crowded with hundreds of selfie takers but well worth a visit

This is must see in Berlin! Take the time to see in in the Day and Night. The good thing is that it is never too crowded. Coordinate with your tour of the Reichstag building/dome. The Reichstag building needs a reservation, so book early to...More

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

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

It looks like Easter is a great time to visit Germany, since Easter is one of their most celebrated holidays. Many events and special markets and decorations. I wouldn't worry about that.
