Head to the famous Brandenburg Gate (or “Brandenburger Tor”), constructed in the 17th century and rebuilt in the 18th century, to behold the ultimate symbol of freedom for Berliners. They rallied around this historic landmark during the revolutions that occurred just before the Berlin Wall was finally torn down in 1990.
Micro brews are king in Germany. Everywhere you turn, there’s a unique brew worth sampling. Meat lovers will delight in the various wurst, or sausage, selections Berlin has to offer, from bratwurst (ground pork and spices) to blutwurst (blood sausage) to currywurst (venison spiced with curry). Berliners are a must have for dessert. These traditionally northern German doughnuts are filled with jam or cream, and topped off with powdered sugar or icing.
