The Brandenburg Gate is right around the corner from the Reichstag, and really isn't too difficult to locate. Mel and I wandered up along the main road to the gate after breakfast. The trees along this road are simply gorgeous. They are called linden trees, apparently, and were the most delightful shades of autumn. This avenue is called Unter den Linden, and once led to the Prussian palace. Brandenburger Tor is the gate to this avenue, and was built as a monument to peace. The Quadriga sits atop the gate, and looks over Berlin. I felt so small standing underneath the gateway. It was a beautiful place, even with the ridiculous American tourists taking dorky photographs with fake soldiers.
