The Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor), Berlin; is a former city gate and one of the main symbols of Berlin and Germany. It is the only remaining gate of a series through which one formerly entered Berlin. 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. The Brandenburg Gate was restored from 2000 to 2002. Today, it is considered one of Europe's most famous landmarks.
