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.

Well what to tell you about this place. Of corse a must to see. This place is one of the most important historical places in Berlin. The last time I stood there was with the wall. So this time it was a total different feeling.
Looking majestic and impressive, in December the Christmas tree and lights add to that. I didn’t expect to see a Menorah there too. Standing at the Gate and thinking back the events that have taken place right there… Gives you chills. A must see.
The history in Berlin is the main attraction and it doesn’t get more historic than the brandenburg gate

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
