The Brandenburg Gate (or Brandenburger Tor) is a monument in the heart of Berlin which used to mark the beginning of the road from Berlin to Brandenburg. The gate was a symbol of Germany, even during the Cold War and the separation of East and West Berlin, when the gate stood in no-man’s-land. It has since become a symbol of peace and unity and is one of Germany’s best-known landmarks. It’s a popular stop on tours of the city, and it’s a great place to take photos during the day and after dark.

Brandenburg Gate - The Landmark of Berlin

The Brandenburg Gate stands at the end of the boulevard Unter den Linden and was built at the end of the 18th century at the behest of Frederick William II.
The model for the gate from antiquity was the Propylaea, the entrance gate to the Acropolis in Athens - Carl Gotthard Langhans, who was commissioned with the design, took his cue from these. Actually, the new gate should be named Friedenstor, but since the arterial road towards Brandenburg an der Havel was located at the other end of the boulevard, the current name came about, under which the Brandenburg became one of the most famous sights, if not the whole of Germany.

The Quadriga

The bronze sculpture of the Quadriga, created by the artist Gottfried Schadow, has stood on the roof of the Brandenburg Gate since 1794. Napoleon captured the work of art in 1806, and it was only after the defeat at the Battle of Leipzig in 1814 that the Quadriga found its way back to Berlin - Karl Friedrich Schinkel added the insignia of Prussia to the ensemble of statues at this time. Since the restoration of the gate after World War 2, the original sculpture is no longer on the roof - it was almost completely destroyed in 1945.
