Brandenburg Gate is a former city gate in Berlin completed in 1791; it once led to the city palace and was heavily damaged in the Second World War before being jointly restored by West Germany and East Germany. It remained a thoroughfare until the Berlin Wall went up, resulting in the gate ending up on the East Berlin side. At the end of the Cold War, President Ronald Reagan made his infamous plea to "tear down this wall" at the gate. During the fall of the Berlin Wall, celebrations were centered around the gate and made it a symbol of German reunification.
