The Berlin Wall wasn’t the only thing separating East Germany from West Germany during the Cold War. There was the Brandenburg Gate, built by Prussian royalty in the late 1700s and designed in a classical Greek style meant to mimic Athens’ Acropolis. When the wall fell, the gate rose as a symbol of unity for Germans. If you happen to be in Berlin for Unification Day or New Year’s Eve, you’ll understand why.
