Brandenburg Gate was built in the 18th century as a defining symbol of the city, but it ended up in the middle of the no-man’s land separating East and West Germany for the better part of the 20th century. Today, this impressive monument epitomizes European unification and continued peace. It often serves as an attractive backdrop for special events, such as concerts. Architect Carl Gotthard Langhans designed the triumphal arch, finding inspiration in classical Greek architecture. He chose this spot to serve as the entry into the city’s renowned boulevard of linden trees. Artist Johan Gottfried Schadow’s sculpture of a winged goddess commanding a chariot crowns the gate.

  • We were here many years ago: at that time it was possible to have a view like through a window to the "West Berlin". Nowadays, full of visitors going in all directions....

  • Brandenburg Gate was really impressive... I really liked it very much. The German authorities have done a lot of work that should be praised and applauded... The fine carvings on the walls give one a glance of rich German culture and architecture... Must be visited if one tours Germany.
  • It's feel like i am in Delhi at India gate. If you see from the centre to the victory tower. Amazing experience. Would love to visit again and again ❤️ So beautiful and adorable place
