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!
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!
There was a special exhibit in front of the Brandenburg Gate. I had to rush to find out what it was.
The soccer ball changed pictures and here it has eyes all over it.
It is a must, as you said, to visit this tor while in Berlin. And i did, as recommended. And you see, this all red car are soo sexy behind the tor!
Built by Schadow in 1793 the quadriga was meant to be a symbol of peac. Stolen by Napolean in 1806; returned later to Berlin after the battle of Waterloo; the quadriga has seen it all really.
The gate is highly symbolic in German history. I remember a lot of vendors here selling military paraphernalia from Russia and other Eastern Bloc countries.
It's worth having a look at the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) although there isn't a whole lot to 'do' there...
This famous gate was once the dividing point between East and West Germany. It was designed by Karl Gotthard in 1791 and crowned by the Goddess of Victory.
The Brandenburger Tor, a wellknown landmark. Look one side into the old west part of town and the other to the east. Dont forget to look at the restored Reichstag.
The main architectural design of this landmark hasn't changed since it was first constructed in 1791.
...well it would be nice to see what things look like now that the wall has come down. I've only seen the city when the wall was up. Here is the Brandenburg Gate with the wall in place.
The Brandenberg Gate...a definate must see...much history happened at this spot.
One of the most famous landmarks in the world.
