Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

A short walk through the center of Berlin gives you the sense of this great city and history. The Brandenburg Gate was commisioned by Friedrich Wilhelm II to represent peace in 1791, now the most well-know landmark in Berlin stands as a symbol of the reunification of Germany.

Here leaders of the world came and spoke and here once was a wall, but today a place where people from all over the world come appreciate the beauty of the design of this structure and the significance of the history it witnessed.

It was snowing this day!
