Brandenburg Gate is a 26m high, 65,5m wide and 11m deep early classical sandstone construction. The gate is crowned by one about 5m high sculpture, called Quadriga, which represents winged victory goddess with a four-horesed chariot facing into the city.
Until 1989 it symbolized the division of Berlin, today it is a national symbol of German unity.
The strongly damaged Quadriga during New Year's Eve 1989/1990 was restored in 1991. The gate was again displayed on 3rd of October 2002 after 22 months of restoration.
You reach the Brandenburg Gate from the hotel with the bus in approx. 15 minutes.
