Brandenburg Gate is one of Berlin’s best-known landmarks. A national symbol, it is associated with numerous events in the history of Berlin, Germany and Europe. Situated on the border between the former East and West Berlin, it was once a symbol of the city’s division – since reunification it has become a symbol of German unity. The imposing building is located at Pariser Platz, which is surrounded by villas and international embassies. On 31 December, hundreds of thousands of people gather here each year to see in the new year while watching an exciting live show.
