Bike Touring Highlight
The Brandenburg Gate can look back on a 200-year history. Until 1989 it was a symbol of the division of Berlin and Germany, today it is a national symbol of unity and thus one of the city's most famous landmarks. Wall, barbed wire, watchtowers: no other place clarified so much the division of Germany as the Brandenburg Gate. Right on the bike path. Sightseeing possible at any time.

Actually, all of Berlin is a highlight.
The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin is located on the Pariser Platz in the Dorotheenstadt in the district Mitte. It was built by Carl Gotthard Langhans in the years 1788-1791 at the direction of the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II and is a well-known landmark and national symbol, with which many important events in the history of Berlin, Germany, Europe and the world of the 20. Century are connected. The building is assigned to the early Classicist style.
The Brandenburg Gate forms the conclusion of the boulevard Unter den Linden with the Pariser Platz. On the west side of the gate is the square of the 18th of March, on which begins the road of June 17, which crosses the Tiergarten.
The Brandenburg Gate marked the border between East and West Berlin and thus the border between the states of the Warsaw Pact and NATO. It was a symbol of the Cold War until German reunification and became the symbol of the reunification of Germany and Europe after 1990.

The highlight in Berlin! Drive through slowly and descend several times by bike and then simply sit down somewhere in the gate and let the hustle and bustle of the tourist activity take its toll on you.
For a few decades, this was out of the question!
A place steeped in history!

It is the Brandenburg Gate, a Berlin landmark due to its special history. One of the places in Berlin where there are more tourists than Berliners during the day. Everyone who is in Berlin must have seen it, but that's not the only thing Berlin has to offer, our beautiful city offers so much more. Nevertheless, we can all be happy that it looks like this here, because about 30-40 years ago it looked very different here and nobody thought about going through or going through the gate, today it is normal. Even as a Berliner, you can drive through here, also has something, ideally probably early, when there aren't that many tourists.
