    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.

    If by bike, then best early in the morning. The light falls through the gate, no people and, above all, hardly any cars on the streets.

    It was the end of my bikepacking trip from Amsterdam - Berlin. The feeling of ending under the Branderburger Tor was just amazing. :)

    The highlight in Berlin! Ride your bike slowly through it several times and then just sit down somewhere in the gate and let the tourist hustle and bustle sink in.
    For decades such a thing was unthinkable!
    A very historic place!

    Who does not know the Berlin landmark and monumental splendid building known beyond the borders of Germany.
    The classicistic triumphal gate is the end of the street Unter den Linden, and the last of the Berlin city gates. It was built in 1793 on the instructions of the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II according to a design by Carl Gotthard Langhans. The Quadriga is the work of the sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow.

    As a symbol of German unity a must for all Berlin visitors. It is still a special experience to cycle through the Brandenburg Gate, especially if you know the conditions before 1989.

    On a bike ride to Berlin, a ride through the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol of German unity, is a must. Especially if you have experienced the times when this was neither possible from the East nor from the West.

    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.

    The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin is an early classicist triumphal gate that stands on the western flank of the square Pariser Platz in the Mitte district of Berlin. It was built at the end of the central boulevard of Dorotheenstadt, the boulevard Unter den Linden, between 1789 and 1793 on the instructions of the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II. It is the only preserved of 18 Berlin city gates and the most famous Berlin landmark.

    For me, this place remains magical. As a former West Berliner I could never go as far as the Brandenburg Gate as a child. That's why this matter of course always remains something special for me.

    Best position to see the Brandenburg Gate in all its glory.
    A time of day when not so many tourists are walking around is recommended.
