The Brandenburg Gate Visit

Commissioned by Friedrich Wilhelm II to represent peace, the Brandenburg Gate is probably the most well-known landmark in Berlin. Once incorporated into the Berlin Wall during the years of Communist government, the Brandenburg Gate now stands as a symbol of the reunification of the two sides of this great city. Built in the classic Greek style, the gate consists of 12 Doric columns and, on top, there is a chariot drawn by four horses and driven by Victoria, the Roman Goddess of Victory.
