Brandenburger Tor

The most famous Berlin sight to see is of course the Brandenburg Gate. Photographed from every side, visited by millions of people, it’s a busy sight. At the Pariser Platz, there are always groups of people taking pictures with the Brandenburg Gate in the background, but also living statues, vendors and every now and then a demonstration. Lots of life.

The Brandenburg Gate is also the face of the downfall of the Berlin Wall. It’s the place where people walked from east to west Berlin on the famous night in 1989.

At the end of the year, there’s always this big Christmas tree in front of the Brandenburg Gate, especially beautiful at night.
