This is the start of the Berlin leg of my European trip last June. The first day my daughter DD, her husband and I did touristy things around Berlin, on a sunny Sunday. We took trains everywhere, which were really efficient, clean and relatively cheap.
As we approached the stop for this tourist attraction, the train driver announced Brandenburger Tor. Only I didn’t catch it at first, because, obviously, he spoke German. What he said was more like ‘Brandnboour Toour’.
I’m sure all great tourist sights, such as this amazing gate, have been documented to death, so you can read all about it here: Brandenburg Gate. However, this is my shot. I was there. And it really is wonderful. You have to stop and marvel.
They were setting up for some sort of outdoor concert, so we couldn’t walk through the middle. But, we saw it well enough and walked through the side, craning our necks to look up at the magnificent green horses as we passed beneath them.
