The Branderburg Gate in Berlin, Germany

The Brandenburger Tor, commonly known in English as Brandenburg Gate is an iconic symbol not only in Berlin but in Germany as a whole. It is a former city located west of the city center at the junction of Unter den Linden and Ebertstrasse. It is also located near the Reichstag building.

I finally visited this capital city of Germany last month. It was another dream came true. I was fascinated with this city and wishes to visit it again in the future.

According to wikipedia, the Branderburg Gate was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace and built by Carl Gotthard Langhans from 1788 to 1791.
