The Brandenburg Gate (in German Brandenburger Tor) is a neoclassical style gate of Berlin. It is the most famous monument in Berlin and is known throughout the world as a symbol of the city itself and of all of Germany. Opened to traffic on August 6, 1791, the gate was built starting in 1788 by Carl Gotthard Langhans, who was inspired by the reconstruction of the Propylaea of Athens, published in 1758 by Leroy in his “Ruines des plus beaux Monuments de la Grèce”. The gate is 26 meters high and 65 meters wide. The Doric stone columns, which on the ground have a diameter of 1.75 meters, create 5 passageways.
