Berlin | Brandenburger Tor and Berlin Wall
View from East Berlin in W direction. The Brandenburg Gate represents a Neoclassic monument completed in 1791. It has witnessed various important events of European history in its immediate vicinity. Located directly adjacent to the Berlin Wall from 1961 to 1989 (seen in the background of this photo), the gate has later, after the German reunification, become a symbol for peace and unity.
