Between 1756 and 1763, Prussia and Austria fought each other in the third Silesian War. After seven years of war Silesia is added to the Kingdom of Prussia. King Frederick the Great decided that a triumphal arch should commemorate his victory. Two master builders designed the Brandenburg Gate on Luisenplatz in the heart of Potsdam. Karl von Gontard designed the city side on behalf of Frederick II. His pupil Georg Christian Unger took over the field side. Seven years after the end of the war, the Brandenburg Gate was completed.

Anyone who makes an appointment with Potsdamers at the Brandenburg Gate should pay attention to which address he enters in the route planner - or, best of all, use this highlight right away. Not that the other party waits in vain for about 35 kilometers in Berlin. The Potsdamer Brandenburg Gate was built in 1770/71 on behalf of Frederick II and is thus about 10 years older than the Berlin namesake. Previously, here was a slightly simpler gate that was then part of the demolished in 1900 city wall and was built together with the wall to stop the smuggling. Those who wanted to make their way to the city of Brandenburg had to pass this gate - hence the name. Today, the gate happens anyone who wants to stroll from the Luisenplatz, through the main shopping street of Potsdam, the Brandenburger Straße - or coming from there on the way to Sanssouci.
