The Brandenburg Gate is the old entrance to Berlin and one of the main symbols of both the city and Germany.

It is a construction of 26 meters high, with its neoclassical style, reminiscent of the buildings of the Acropolis of Athens.
It is located in the current center of the city, in the Place de Paris, forming the end of the Unter den Linden avenue and marking the beginning of the large Tiergarten park and the avenue Straße des 17. Juni.

The Brandenburg Gate was built between 1788 and 1791 during the reign of Frederick William II of Prussia by Carl Gotthard Langhans, following the model of the gateway to the Acropolis of Athens.
