Owner description: Located in no-man's land between East and West Germany during the Cold War, this famous monument, built during the 18th-century reign of Friedrich Wilhelm II, has long been a defining symbol of Berlin and both the city's division and unification.

Visit to Berlin is incomplete without this. I did some reading before visiting Berlin. There was some event going on when we visited. This is a must see for everyone and you can just walk to holocaust memorial from here.

I guess you cannot come to Berlin, and not see this place. Other than that, I wouldn't say the place is packed with attractions!

Such a famous monument. The Eiffel tower of Berlin, yet Berlin is in constant and everywhere construction which totally destroyed a sightseers enjoyment. Such is life at this time in Germany. I joked that my trip through germany log will be entitled Construction in Germany.

We felt that we could not say we had visited berlin unless we had visited the Brandenburger Tor, which became such a symbol of the divided Berlin during the days of the Deutscher Demokratische Republik, so called. This is quite a joke nowadays as the one thing it wasn't was demokratisch. Now it no longer acts as a symbol of the division of Berlin, rather its reunification and restoration as the capital of a united Germany.

you won't see much more than on a postcard. fascinating, though, are the two sides and public spaces on either side ... the square - start of unter den linden, with hotel adlon where michael j dangled his insemination baby - the reichstag area on the area. check out the sausage stand dressed up for the occasion.
