Land of Loveliness

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin


euromaxx reporter Michael Wigge is back with a new car, a new outfit and a new assignment. Once a week he will travel to one of Germany's many famous tourist attractions.

In the first report his destination is Berlin's Brandenburg Gate. It's world famous as a symbol of German unity. Wigge finds out why: Partly because it was off-limits behind the Berlin Wall during the Cold War years of division.

But Wigge then gets a taste of life as a Berlin rikshaw driver. Their legpower pedals tourists through the landmark gate. He also gets permission to climb out on top of the monument and get a close-up look at the Quadriga.
