Brandenburg Gate – Ebertstrasse • Berlin • Germany
Panorama view from the Tiergarten towards the Brandenburg Gate and the bordering buildings on the Ebertstrasse. Contrary to the popular view from the Parisian Square you cannot see the whole ensemble of the Quadriga on top of the gate, which is facing eastwards. The Brandeburg Gate was built by Carl Gotthard Langhans in the years 1788-1791 following an order by the king Friedrich Wilhelm II. It is the last remaining city gate of Berlin. Between 1945 and 1990 the Brandenburg Gate as well as the Ebertstrasse have been part of the border between East and West Berlin. After the fall of the Berlin Wall modern architecture arised left and right of the gate. To the far right you can see the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (also called Holocaust Memorial).
