Brandenburg Gate in Berlin has got to be one of the must-visit attractions when you visit the capital of Germany – Berlin!
Brandenburg Gate was constructed in the 18th century and is synonymous with Germany because of the major events that it has seen. Napoleon passed through it, while more recently (although not so recent) East and West Germany were separated by it. Today, it is a major tourist attraction not only because of its significance to the history of Germany but also because of its location.
If you take a walk along Unter den Linden towards the Brandenburg Gate, you will find that it is home to many Embassies such as the Russian and British Embassy. Many famous architectures are also located in the vicinity of Unter den Linden which includes the Adlon Hotel, Berlin State Opera, Crown Prince’s Palace, St. Hedwig’s Cathedral as well as the Historical Museum.

Events are also often held at the Brandenburg Gate today. During our recent visit, we witnessed the Berlin Marathon as well as some panda activists (we think?) doing a video shoot!
