Brandenburg gate

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin I'd really like to visit Germany, especially Berlin, to see what it's really like. I always imagine it to be similar to the UK but with a different language, I'd like to see if this is true.

Built as a city entrance leading to the palace of the Prussian monarchs, the Brandenburg Gate became a symbol of freedom and reunification after the fall of the Wall in 1989.

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin - Probably the most majestic of the historical sites in Berlin, the late 18th century Brandenburg Gate was originally built as the royal city gate and crowned with a sculpture of the winged goddess of victory steering a chariot.

Brandenburg Gate (Germany). 'Prussian emperors, Napoleon and  Hitler have marched through this  neoclassical royal city gate that was once trapped east of the Berlin Wall. Since 1989, it has gone from a symbol of division and oppression to the symbol of a united Germany. The powerful landmark, which overlooks the stately Pariser Platz square with its embassies and banks, is at its most atmospheric at night.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/germany/berlin/sights/gate/brandenburger-tor
