The Brandenburg Gate was originally a gate in the Berlin Wall, leading to Brandenburg. The now preserved Brandenburg Gate is a classical revival building, ordered by King Frederick William II of Prussia to be built between 1788 and 1791 to commemorate the victory of Prussia in the Seven Years War. The bronze goddess of victory on the door symbolizes the victory of war, but is called the goddess of peace, was taken to Paris, and then returned to Berlin after Waterloo. The statue was blown up during World War II, and it is now a restored version, but the iron cross and the Prussian eagle in the goddess scepter symbolizing militarism have been removed. Together with the Berlin Wall, this door has witnessed the separation of nearly half of the world, and is now one of the symbols of Berlin. There is a stall selling lye bread under the square in front of the door, as well as performing artists. They always feel that the pride in the bones of Europeans is never changed because of what he is doing now, even if it is a joint performer, it will not Have a pleasing expression. There are carriages for tourists on the street not far away, tall horses, and iron hooves walking on the streets full of classical-style buildings, full of European-style beauty. How can we imagine that these buildings were destroyed by war? Once the moment. The sophistication and elegance that have been painstakingly crafted can be broken into pieces in the face of conflict, and still feel the beauty of peace. Allow me to sit on the street with a cup of coffee and appreciate the moment. The beauty of these later generations is hoped to be retained for a longer time.
Whatever it used to be, the Brandenburg Gate is now a symbol of peace and openness. It is a great place for a meet up as well - so wide open that you are bound to see your rendezvous partner (just in case, there is also Starbucks for free wifi). As you come out of the metro (S-bahn Branderburg Tor) you can find park benches and places to park your bike. Learn about the history beforehand, it will make standing there a much richer experience!
