The Brandenburg Gate

The former city gate, which was built between 1788 and 1791 by Emperor Friedrich Wilhelm II as a symbol of peace, is one of the
main symbols of Berlin. It was closed when the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961, but after the German people tore down the wall in 1989, it became a symbol of the freedom and unity of the City of Berlin.

The Reichstag

The Reichstag was almost destroyed by fire in 1933 and damaged during World War II. The building has since been renovated and became the German House of Parliament in 1992.
