    Branderburger Tor is the symbol of Berlin. I went there "to be n a place from the postcard". Near the Tor is a great possibility to take a photo with Berlin Bear. :-) It costs you 1 Euro.

    Originally, the Brandenburger Tor was one of many city gates.The statue on the roof of the Gate is called The Quadriga. Standing under the gate, the prospect is stunning!

    Brandenburg Gate - without the wall. The street on the other side is Unter Den Linden - lots of museums and a wonderful place to walk.

    This is the old gate that was once the entrance to Berlin. It was built by Frederick the Great fo prussia to commemorate his victories. It is the major tourist attraction as well as the Reichstag.

    Before coming across the Brandenberg Tor in the middle of the street I guess, there were these different pieces of rock art which was great to take pictures with.

    Brandenburger Tor at night

    by bafgkm Written Sep 25, 2004

    In the morning, there're always too many people touring here, so if you wanna take a good picture, it's better to do it at night. DOn't you think with this light, the gate looks better? :)

    East meets West

    by William1982 Written Aug 1, 2004

    Once was a symbol of division in the city, now just a symbol of Berlin. There was a football being constructed by this gate when the picture was taken, a world cup info point I think???

    Brandenburg Gate

    by ClassyGirl Written Jun 22, 2004

    As you can see in the picture, I didn't get to see the Brandenburg Gate because it was under construction. That sucked, because I was really looking forward to it!

    Brandenburg Gate was covered when I visited....

    This is the door that seperated Berlin Ost to Berlin West. It is impressive to walk under. If you visit Berlin you have to see it, it is the symbol of Berlin.

    I hope I got a special shot of the gate. I was on the bus heading through the city when I saw the Famous Brandenburg Gate.

    But what was this Neon Blue shining by it?

    Hmm, I had to find out!
