When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 it became a focal point for the celebrations and is now one of the most well known landmarks of Germany. The Brandenburg Gate is a former city gate, revived in the late 18th Century by Frederick William II of Prussia as a triumphal arch, and now one of the most well known landmarks of Berlin and Germany.
