What you see on TV is exactly what you see in person. It's historic, take your picture and keep walking. Unless you're there for a protest, head to the park, or to go to an embassy, there's not much else there.

We visited this Berlin must see at sunset and the sight was quite empty of tourists. It is an amazing sight and well worth the visit, so much history.

A must see, but it will be full of people, so if you have issue with people being in your pictures, I suggest you wake up extra early!

This gate, famous all over the world, its a must see place in Berlin. It was rebuilt lot of times and now is Imposing like it was during the past eras. From this you can reach almost every place in Berlin, by foot or by metro.

One of the most famous monuments Berlin has, and the details on the architecture is quite pleasing to look at.
A picture here is needed for anyone traveling to Berlin.

We were here many years ago: at that time it was possible to have a view like through a window to the "West Berlin". Nowadays, full of visitors going in all directions....

(I will start my reviews by always saying I give the fairest unbiased reviews of my personal experience which may not always reflect exactly the same as others experience. This is in the event of unprofessional backlash from businesses some reviewers face.)

In my opinion the Tor or gate is a sight to be adored. It's historical presence, story and meaning are more valuable than one could say.

For me personally this site holds great significance. The stories I am told by my father are of that a train once ran through or by the Brandenburg gate. My German grandmother was on the train leaving Germany to escape as Russians open fired on the train killing people on the train but My grandmother survived and managed to get to England.

I am truly blessed to be able to witness all the historical places that not only hold meaning for family but the millions, that a cruel past has affected.
Day or night if I went out aimlessly walking through Berlin I kept ending up back here like history calls to me.

It's a must see, if you visit Berlin for the first time, even though there really isn't that much to see... On the site it seems just like in every picture, just with hundreds of tourists around it.
