The Brandenburg Gate, an 18th-century neoclassical monument, stands tall as a symbol of unity and peace after the division of the city during the Cold War. Similarly, the East Side Gallery, a 1.3-kilometer stretch of the Berlin Wall, is a must-visit. It's now an international memorial for freedom, adorned with graffiti art that echoes the city's call for peace and unity.
