Brandenburger Gate

the Quadriga

Brandenburger GateThe Brandenburger Gate is the only remaining city gate in Berlin. It was commissioned by King Friedrich Wilhelm II and constructed by Karl Gotthard Langhans from 1788 to 1791. The Gate has 12 Doric columns, six on both sides, dividing the gate into five passageways. In 1794 the building was crowned with the Quadriga, a chariot drawn by four horses driven by the Roman goddess of victory.
After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Brandenburger Gate became Germany's symbol of unity and freedom.
