The Brandenburg Gate



One of Berlin's most famous landmarks, the Brandenburg Gate marks one of the old city gates. Not that you'd ever guess from looking at it: this certainly isn't the sort of gate that would stand up to hoardes of marauding raiders. With its neo-classical columns and imposing statuary, Brandenburger Tor is far more decorative than functional.

It is, however, really very decorative.

As you say, decorative, but not really enough to stop even a horde of schoolgirls!
