The Brandenburg Gate - one of the most famous landmarks of Berlin
During the division of Germany the gate was associated with the cold war and marked the border between the GDR and the FRG. After the fall of the wall the Brandenburg Gate eventually developed a new meaning: a symbol of a reunified Germany and and its old but new capital.
The great gate in Dorotheen-district is a venue for many events. For information you can visit the information office directly at the Brandenburg Gate. It is open daily from 9.30am until 6pm. Since 1995, Berlin celebrates here also one of the largest New Year's Eve party. Admission is free, but if you would like a seat, you have to come early, no later than 7.30 p.m.
