    The Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of German unity from the memorial of division. Its original purpose had nothing to do with politics.
    The sandstone Brandenburg Gate is one of the largest and most beautiful creations of German classicism. It was built in the years 1788 to 1791 to designs by Carl Gotthard Langhans the Elder, which was strongly based on the Propylaea of ​​the Athenian Acropolis. King Frederick William II had previously ordered the construction of the Brandenburg Gate, as he sought a dignified architectural end to the boulevard Unter den Linden.

    The monumental Brandenburg Gate can look back on a 200-year history. If it was a symbol of the division of Berlin and Germany until 1989, today it is a national symbol of unity and thus one of the city's most famous landmarks.

    The Brandenburg Gate stops. For too long many were allowed to look at it from one side only ... Unfortunately ...

    Anyone visiting Berlin, whether from home or abroad, must pass by the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol of freedom par excellence. The Brandenburg Gate became the place of remembrance of the German division, a symbol of freedom for West and East.

    A piece of history that should not be missed on a visit to Berlin. For me always closely connected with the streets June 17 and Unter den Linden, the Hotel Astor and the view of the column.

    The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin is one of the most important landmarks of the metropolis. The only surviving city gate of Berlin, which was formerly mainly for the separation of the city in East and West, has been the symbol of the unity of Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall. In addition, sandstone construction is one of the finest examples of German classicism.

    This monumental gate "Unter den Linden" stood for a long time unreachable between West and East. Since the turn it can be reached on the impressive street "Unter den Linden". On the way there you happen u.a. the Alexander von Humboldt University and other historically and culturally valuable buildings. In the vicinity of the Brandenburg Gate, however, there is a lot of excitement, demonstrations, etc.
