Brundenburg Gate

Posted by
Dokmateo (Madrid, Spain) on 13 May 2011 in Art & Design.

A photowalk at Parque Europa in Torrejon de Ardoz. It is a park as wide as 233,000sqm where all the reproductions of the most emblematic monuments of the main European cities as well as various leisure and similar areas are displayed.

This is a sequence of yesterday's photo but I made a mistake on this landmark because I named it Cinquantenaire of Brussels. It was too late when I noticed it so I let it stay. (Special thanks to Graciel.la for telling me as well).

BRUNDENBURG GATE of BERLIN- is a former city gate and one of the main symbols of Berlin and Germany. It is located west of the city center at the junction of Unter den Linden and Ebertstraße, immediately west of the Pariser Platz. It is the only remaining gate of a series through which Berlin was once entered. One block to the north stands the Reichstag building. The gate is the monumental entry to Unter den Linden, the renowned boulevard of linden trees which formerly led directly to the city palace of the Prussian monarchs. It was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace and built by Carl Gotthard Langhans from 1788 to 1791. Having suffered considerable damage in World War II, the Brandenburg Gate was fully restored from 2000 to 2002 by the Stiftung Denkmalschutz Berlin (Berlin Monument Conservation Foundation). Today, it is regarded as one of Europe's most famous landmarks.
