1. Walk Around The Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

December 6, 2013

Brandenburger Gate, Berlin       Once it stood within a divided city, a shadow between east and west that stretched up into the sky. Now of course, the silhouette still stretches but it functions neither as a gate (it’s former function) nor blockade but instead as a tourist attraction.

 

It’s possible (encouraged in fact) to walk both around, under and beyond this iconic landmark. Rent a bike or hike west into the Tiergarten Park or head past the shops along Unter den Linden to reach Berlin’s other skyward landmark, the Fernsehturm Tower.
Many direct high-speed ICE and regional trains run from various cities across Germany to Berlin. It’s good to know that your German Rail Pass is also valid on the S-bahn that operates within major German cities.
