Berlin 02

Berlin Episode 02 The Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate

Berlin’s two big hitters

On a first trip to Berlin you’ll probably head straight for the Parliament or the Brandenburg Gate. We’re doing the same, and handily, they are close together and near to lots of other top sites. We bring you a little history to explain why these two iconic monuments represent everything dear to today’s Berliners – lessons from history and the freedom enjoyed in the capital today – and explain what to look out for when you visit.
