Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate was built by King Friedrich Wilhelm between 1788 and 1791, and was once one of 14 city gates. On the top stands a four-horse Roman chariot driven by Victoria, the goddess of victory. In 1806 Napoleon stole the statue, and it only came back to Berlin after the German victory over France.


How many horses?
Four – which is why the chariot is called the Quadriga.

Did you know that …

the Brandenburg Gate is depicted on three German euro coins? 10, 20 and 50 cents.
