When you go to Brandburg Gate you generally find a sea of tourists busy snapping pictures of this Berlin Landmark. But to be honest I find the view from the gate towards the east to be a bit more special. You get to see some of the construction work that is taking place all along the streets Unter Den Linden and Karl Liebknect. There are cranes galore. The magic of cities aren’t just the remnants of the past, but also the possibilities of the future.
