I guess this might be the No.1 landmark in Berlin, built on the orders of Prussian King Frederick William II after the successful restoration of order during the early Batavian revolution. The gate is a quite grand structure, set on a small plaza. We sat down on the...More

Yes, a piece of the European recent history. You need to know the history in order to appreciate it and to feel emotions staying there.

Very busy but always a good view. A nice stroll from alexanderplatz past other beautiful buildings. Close to the memorial for murdered European Jews. Worth a visit.

like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the

of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

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.
