Brandenburg Gate, the gate between east and west

The Brandenburg Gate is one of Berlin's most famous landmarks, erected in 1731 as one of the city gates in the customs wall that then surrounded what was then the outskirts of Berlin. In 1789-1791 the wall was rebuilt and got the neoclassical style it has now.

All the other city walls have been demolished, but the Brandenburg Gate still stands. It even barely survived the war, though it was significantly damaged.

Before 1989, the gate stood right up against the Berlin Wall and was seen as a symbol of the divided city, but after the fall of the wall, the gate was rebuilt and has now become a symbol of the unity of the city and the country.

The gate is popular with tourists and is worth a visit whether you are on a historical tour, looking for exciting buildings or going for the tourist attractions.

The adjacent has become a real tourist trap and is filled with street vendors, musicians, beggars, horse-drawn carriage rides and noise.

The Brandenburg Gate is located a little west of the city center, at the end of the beautiful boulevard and immediately west of Paris Platz.
