There were originally 18 city gates on the old customs wall, which stood in the city from the 18th century until the mid-19th century. Carl Gotthard Langhans built the 26-metre-high gate back in 1789-91 following the Greek model. At the top of the Brandenburg Gate stands a 6-metre high statue of a chariot and in the gatehouses you can see two large statues - in one stands the god Mars with the sword and in the other Minerva with the lance. The gate is at the end of the two boulevards, Unter den Linden and Straße des 17. Juni. Find child-friendly hotels in Berlin and go on a real city break with the family.
