Brandenburg Gate - Berlin

The Brandenburg Gate is the iconic symbol for freedom and victory in Berlin. Built in the late 1700s the gate was one of several gates into the city. The Brandenburg Gate is the only one that still remains. During WWII the gate was heavily damaged but has since been restored to its original splendor. The gate has been used as a backdrop for many important events in history from the entrance point by Napolean into Berlin to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
