“Go to see the Gate”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

one needs to the the Gate just to soak in the history, to stand where JFK stood and to see the many changes that the gate has seen over the past 70 years

“Berlin's landmark”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is where Berliner historical spirit resides. A little disappointing in terms of scale but still one of the main sights in Berlin.

“Beautiful structure; lots of history”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

As a veteran of the cold war, this had a lot of meaning to me. This is a symbol of what the allied forces fought for. It is worth a visit. There's a lot of memorials close by along with the Parliament building.

“Mandatory visit”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Probably one of the most visited attractions in Berlin. It's worth to see and easy to combine with a stroll along "Unter den Linden". You will find the famous "Hotel Adlon" and the American Embassy just a couple of steps away. The holocaust monument and the Reichstag are just five minutes walking distance.
