You can't help notice this if you're walking around Berlin. Google the history of it and if you take a walking tour they'll likely mention it too.

We enjoyed our visit to the Brandenburg Gate. When you think of the history of Berlin, there are a few places that stand out as meaningful sites and this is one. The gate structure is impressive on its own with the fluted columns and horse...More

The 18th Century Brandenburg Gate is one of the most iconic locations in Berlin, replacing an older entrance through Berlin's customs wall to Unter den Linden and lying within East Berlin during the Cold war era. The best views are from Pariser Platz.

Crowded w/ people and used as a meeting place. Still, it was a nice walk along the Tiergarden to see this historical site.

Impressive landmark structure at the top of a bustling plaza. The embassies close by are worth a look too.

A must see while visiting Berlin. Tried to get there really early or really late to prevent running into crowds. I was not early or late enough and it was difficult to get a picture. Beautiful landmark.

One of our Red Bus stops. A large map explains the history of the gate. A starting point for many bike,car and a strange variety of wheeled transport to take you around the area. Iconic site of Berlin, another picture opportunity for the album .

Whilst in Berlin this should be one of your touristy stops. Was mobbed when we were there but still nice. Right next door is the memorial for murdered Jews

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

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
