The gate is impressive at the end of the road from the Victory Column. The best point about the gate is that it represents a united Germany and is a proud symbol of democracy.

it's more interesting what's around rather than the gate itself. It's nicer when some event is organized in front of it

We arrived fairly early at around 9:00am to meet a tour company at 10:00am. Was great to see it and to appreciate its true glory. At this stage, it wasn't that busy. We walked past it again in the afternoon around 2:30pm on our way...More

It is a good place to walk around and soak in the atmosphere of Berlin. Free to just walk around. It has been beautifully cleaned up.

I would recommend going very early or late in the day. The crowds are annoying, unless you happen to love the Times Square crowds in NYC. Worth seeing, but seeing it at a distance is just as wonderful.

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

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

It looks like Easter is a great time to visit Germany, since Easter is one of their most celebrated holidays. Many events and special markets and decorations. I wouldn't worry about that.
