Quite a spectacular monument and easily accessible to all. There are areas to stand and look and on the other side of the monument is a busy bustling road.

The Brandenburg Gate was awe inspiring. The tourists and political protestors were fun to watch. There was much to see and do at the 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
