The Brandenburg Gate is the perhaps most iconic sight in all of Berlin. Built in the architectural style of the German neo-classicism and Berlin’s only surviving city gate, the Brandenburg Gate has become the defining symbol of the fall of the Berlin Wall. When the Wall fell in 1989, hundreds of thousands of people came streaming to see the official opening and celebrate their first communal New Year’s Eve since 1961. The Brandenburg Gate came to be a gateway into a unified Germany and Europe.
Make sure to not miss out on a visit to this stunning attraction at night, as striking illumination creates a very special atmosphere that promises to make the experience even more memorable.
