What can you expect:
The Brandenburg Gate is one of the most important and well-known sights of the city and also the contemporary symbol of (reunited) Berlin. The Brandenburg Gate is the only old city gate (1788) in Berlin that is still standing and was placed in the Russian sector shortly after the Second World War. In 1961, the construction of the Berlin Wall started just behind the Brandenburg Gate.
It is located in the western part of the city centre of Berlin within Mitte, at the junction of Unter den Linden and Ebertstraße, immediately west of the Pariser Platz.
The Brandenburg Gate stands on a square and can be visited free of charge.
The Brandenburg Gate can always be visited. There are no opening hours attached to this.
