The Mühlentor has been a new landmark for Bernau since May 31, 2013.The newly built gate is exactly where the previous building stood. This had to be torn down in June 1885, as carts could hardly pass the then dilapidated gate in Mühlenstrasse, today even the fire brigade comes through.The mill gate was built as part of the “Gates That Connect” project, which was concluded between Bernau and the Polish city of Stargard Szczeciński and supported by Pomerania. The Wall Gate is being restored in the project partner town, which is around 140 kilometers away. The aim is to expand the tourist advantages of both cities.In addition to bricks for the exterior walls, modern building materials such as reinforced concrete were also used for the interior. The gate, built by regional companies, is around 8.80 meters wide, 8.5 meters long and 14.60 meters high. A room has been created above the passage that is to be used for smaller exhibitions, a city model and guided tours.Source: bernau-bei-berlin.de/de/stadtportraet/sehenswerte/bauten/artikel-muehlentor.html
