What do you need to say? It's iconic, is known worldwide and is even more stunning up close. However, it is busy and trying to find a gap to take a decent photo can be like tying to find a space at a concert.

Didn't see it at night but apparently has a superb light show.

Yes, this iconic monument was covered up and had a large TV to show the World Cup and that spoiled the whole effect and experience for me. Why they chose to do this, I will never know?

Looks like an impressive building and a popular one for tourists.

If you are in Berlin you have to visit the Brandenburg Gate. It's located in a great area for other historical sites and plenty of restaurants.

It was nice to visit this place but with the world Cup the access was limited unfortunately. There was also security that stopped me once because I had a little bit of perfume in my purse.

Impressive monument that everyone must see when visiting Berlin. We visited during the day and it was very busy with lots of tourists. As I was one also, can't complain
