How to get there

The Brandenburg Gate is known as the most famous landmark in Berlin. Most tourists visit Berlin due to its cultural history, which is the reason why the gate is such a favored spot. It was built over two hundred years ago and is located very centrally near Tiergarten. However, due to the German division, the gate stood in a restricted area for years. 

The public was able to access the area with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and has since become a symbol of reunification. The Quadriga with the Victoria figure on the gate is a symbol of peace. The statue is the Roman Goddess of Victory and therefore a  significant landmark on the Roman model. When visiting Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate should without a doubt be on the check-list.
