The history of the Brandenburg Gate
The Brandenburg Gate is inspired by the gate buildings of the Athenian Acroplois and was built upon instruction from the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II from 1788 to 1791. Till the Second World War the building was related with the end of the Napoleonic era.
After the widespread wartime destruction the building was reconstructed in 1956. Nowadays the Brandenburg Gate together with the Straße des 17. Juni is considered as Berlin’s assembly point where is enough space for up to one million people.
