Brandenburger Tor hotels
The Brandenburger Tor, Anglicized as The Brandenburg Gate, is located just west of the city centre in Berlin, Germany. Built between 1788 and 1791 to replace a smaller city gate, this magnificent neoclassical triumphal arch is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the country. Badly damaged during World War II, the Brandenburger Tor was first restored in 1958, and then again in 2001. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Gate has become a symbol of unity in Germany and is today one of the city’s major tourist attractions, best photographed at sunset and after dark.
- Set your zoom lens and get some amazing photos of The Quadriga, a magnificent bronze sculpture set atop the gate which depicts a chariot bearing a winged rider, pulled by four horses.
- Watch a live parliamentary session in The Reichstag Building, Germany’s seat of government in Berlin, just a short distance from the Brandenburger Tor.
- Discover the dark history of WWII at Berlin’s beautiful and sombre Holocaust Memorial, an avant-gard work of art.
The Berlin Tegel Airport, which will be replaced by the Berlin Brandenburg Airport when it opens in 2013, is just 8 kilometres from the centre of Berlin and serves most major international cities. From the airport, there are several BVG bus lines, which travel into the city. Once in Berlin, by far the best way to get around is on the U-Bahn and S-Bahn, the underground and surface level rail services which dot the city. The Brandenburger Tor has its own U-Bahn station, and public bus routes 100 and 200 go right past the monument. Guided walking and bike tours of the Brandenburger Tor are also available.
