    Brandenburger Tor at night

    by bafgkm Written Sep 25, 2004
    Brandenburger Tor

    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
    Brandenburg Gate was covered when I visited....

    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 Tor

    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.

    Brandenburg Gate

    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.

    Quadriga

    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.

    Brandenburg Gate

    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.

    Brandenburg Gate

    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.

    Brandenburger Tor

    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.

    ...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.
