2. Brandenburg Gate
As one of the city’s most important landmarks, Brandenburg Gate is on every visitor’s must-see list. Constructed in 1791, the triumphant Neo-classical structure has become a symbol of Berlin. Even if you only visit briefly to snap a few photographs, you’ll enjoy the visual experience. With its famed four-horse chariot, the monument is impressive. It was situated next to the Berlin Wall back when the city was divided and was essentially inaccessible to the West for years. However, it has since been restored to its former glory and now proudly stands for peace and unity.
