    Our recent visit to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin proved to be a truly unforgettable experience for my family. Steeped in history and grandeur, this iconic landmark captivated us from the moment we arrived.

    As we approached the gate, its imposing neoclassical design commanded our attention, standing as a symbol of unity and resilience. The sheer magnitude of the structure left us in awe, its majestic columns reaching skyward against the backdrop of the bustling city.

    Gathering in front of the gate, we marveled at its intricate details and ornate sculptures, each telling a story of the city's rich past. From the Quadriga atop the gate to the finely crafted reliefs depicting scenes of triumph and turmoil, every element spoke volumes about the gate's significance in shaping Berlin's history.

    Capturing the perfect family photo against this iconic backdrop was a highlight of our visit, immortalizing the moment for years to come. The joyous laughter and shared excitement as we posed in front of the gate will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

    Exploring the surrounding area, we immersed ourselves in the vibrant atmosphere of Pariser Platz, soaking in the energy of street performers and bustling crowds. The nearby Tiergarten provided a welcome respite from the city's hustle and bustle, offering peaceful green spaces for leisurely strolls and picnics.

    As the day drew to a close, we reflected on our time at the Brandenburg Gate with fondness and gratitude. It was more than just a tourist attraction; it was a symbol of unity, resilience, and the enduring spirit of Berlin.

    In conclusion, our family excursion to the Brandenburg Gate was an experience we will cherish forever. From its awe-inspiring architecture to the sense of history that permeates its surroundings, the gate left an indelible mark on our hearts. Whether you're a history enthusiast, a culture aficionado, or simply seeking a memorable family outing, a visit to the Brandenburg Gate is a must-do when in Berlin. Gus Woltmann

    Difficult to put into words how emotional it is to see this memorial. It is quite expansive and still the scope is hard to imagine. Highly recommend seeing this site.

    This is a huge monument and impressive monument which can be seen from some considerable distance. You can walk to it through Tiergarten although it takes longer than you think and climb all the way to the top, which I wish I had done. It gives me an excellent reason though to go back.

    Jews were not the only ones murdered during the Holocaust, although they were the largest group. Roma, gay and disabled people all were too - this is a simple memorial to the Roma who were murdered.

    Emotive and thought provoking statue of a family with their luggage preparing to board their transport to an unknown concentration camp. It's just outside Friedrichstraße station.

    The Plötzensee Memorial Centre remembers the thousands of people Hitler had killed. It is a stark and awful reminder of a dark time in history - a very somber place.

    This is a moving and yet simple memorial to the murdered LGBT people during the holocaust. Situated in Tiergarten and very close to the more famous and better known Jewish memorial one can peep through a window in the memorial to see a gay couple kissing.

    The entrances, the Lion Gate on Hardenbergplatz and the Chinese-style Elephant Gate on Budapester Straße, are striking works of art from around 1900.

    Berlin Zoo is the oldest zoo in Germany and one of the most species-rich zoos in the world.

    My wife and I visited Schonholzer Heidi during a visit to Berlin last summer. We visited whilst walking the Mauerweg as this is a part of Berlin that is unfamiliar to us.
    Like most Soviet Memorials is it big and bold but also extremely impressive.
    As you walk round you get the feel for the number of Russian soldier who lost their lives in the Battle for Berlin.
    What you begin to realise is that in war there are no actual winners or losers but just thousands of families who mourn for loved ones, often lost on distant lands.

    Oof, hits you right in the gut, 200K people murdered for not fitting the Nazi model of the perfect human, so many of them, unbelievable, the number is that of a small city's population. Imagine that, a whole city wiped out, empty of people. Here stands a poignant memorial, a reminder which refuses to be not seen, to be ignored. I was actually cycling by when I saw it. The blue glass just calls out at you, come and see. Well I saw and I will remember.

    Location: Tiergarten

    Bismarck Memorial is a memorial statue commemorating Prince Otto von Bismarck, the first Chancellor of the German Empire.

    Otto von Bismarck stands over a polished granite pedestal, depicted in the uniform in which he used to appear in the old Reichstag. 
    He stands above 4 statues symbolizing the heroization of Bismarck:

    1-Atlas carrying the globe showing
    Germany's world power status.

    2- Siegfried, forging the imperial sword to show Germany's strong industrial, military might and Bismarck's successful battles against the enemies of the Reich.

    3-Germania, allegory of state authority,
    shapes the crown and scepter, symbolizing the suppression of discord and rebellion. It is meant to express the invincible power of Bismarck. 

    4-Sibylle, allegory of the state wisdom, riding on the back of a sphinx. She is reading the book of history as a symbol of Bismarck's spiritual significance.

    As a history teacher, one of my favourite stories to tell my students is the Captain Kopenicke incident in the run-up to WW1. An old down and out found an old army uniform in a second hand shop, bought it and put it on....and somehow not only convinced a platoon of soldiers from the local barracks, but the whole town that he actually was an army captain. He took over the town hall, holding the mayor and council captive for 2 days. The press worried that the incident revealed the full extent of Wilhelmine Germany's militarism and the blind obedience most people gave to military men (you had to stand aside and salute if a man in uniform passed you on the street). Good on modern day Kopenicke: they've immortalised the 'captain' with an impressive, life size (and by all accounts, lifelike) statue outside the town hall, thus commemorating the town's gullibility at the same time. I felt I had to make a pilgrimage from Berlin to see him - ubahn to Kopenicke and then walk down bahnhofstrasse and at the crossroads, walk right over the bridge to Kopenicke old town, where you'll find the redbrick rathaus and the statue outside its front door.
