The Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor in German) is an ancient gateway to Berlin and one of the main symbols of both the city and Germany. This is not a triumphal arch, but access was by way of Propylaea, the "New Berlin" at the time. It is located in the current center of the city, in Plaza de Paris, forming the end of Unter den Linden and marking the beginning of the great park Tiergarten and Avenue Straße des 17. Juni. Also nearby are the Reichstag and Potsdamer Platz. Important events in the history of Berlin are linked to the Brandenburg Gate. The Brandenburg Gate, designed by architect Carl Gotthard Langhans, is a sandstone building 26 m high, 65.5 m wide and 11 m long in the style of early Neoclassicism. Remember the Propylaea of the Acropolis of Athens. It has five zones of passage, of which the plant is the widest, with two smaller doors on the sides. The columns are Doric, fluted base and reach a diameter of 1.75 m. The top and inside the walkways are covered with reliefs depicting Hercules, Mars and Minerva. After the demolition of the wall of the city (1867-1868), Friedrich Schinkel's pupil, Johann Heinrich Strack, placed on either side the two major portals. The door is topped with a copper sculpture of about 5 m in height, the Quadriga, founded by Johann Gottfried Schadow, representing the goddess Victoria riding a chariot drawn by four horses towards the city.
