One of the best-known landmarks of Germany, Brandenburg Gate is a symbol of European unity and peace as well as a reminder of a difficult past. The gate stands on the location that, historically, marked the city limits of Berlin and leads to the palace of the Prussian monarchs. During WWII, it became a symbol of Nazi power; and during the Cold War, it became a border crossing between East and West Berlin.
