Expert Tip. The Brandenburg Gate, four kilometres from the hotel, is one of Germany's most recognisable landmarks. Constructed in the late 18th century as a monument of peace, the gate's Doric splendour is the only remaining gate of a series through which one formerly entered Berlin. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall it has come to symbolise the unity of the city.
