Brandenburg Gate

An 18th-century neoclassical triumphal arch in Berlin, and one of the best-known landmarks of Germany. It is built on the site of a former city gate that marked the start of the road from Berlin to the town of Brandenburg an der Havel.

Brandenburg Gate was built in the 18th century and is located on the border between East and West Berlin. Particularly in the Cold War era and due to its close proximity with the Berlin Wall, it represented a divide between the East and West. However, since the Berlin Wall was knocked it is now hailed as a monumental symbol for German unity.
