Brandenburger Tor

The Quadriga statue has its own story too. In 1806 Napoleon moved it to Paris as a sign of his victory when he took over Berlin. However, in 1814 and after Napoleon was forced to abdicate, the statue was returned to its original place.

Brandenburger Tor 1, 10117 Berlin, Alemania

The Brandenburg Gate is one of the most famous highlights of Berlin. It was built between 1788 and 1791, and it's crowned with the Quadriga statue.

The Gate is now a symbol of unity, but when Germany was divided it was a symbol of that, as it was used as an observation platform by visitors to peek on the other side of the Wall. It was here that, in 1987, Ronald Regan said: "Mr. Gorbachov, tear down this wall!".
