Good to know

The 18th-century Neo-classical monument is one of the most easily recognisable landmarks in Berlin. This old gate was constructed on the orders of Prussian king Frederick William II and still stands tall at the junction of Unter den Linden and Ebertstraße. The gate is 26 meters high, 65.5 meters long, and 11 meters deep. It was restored after it suffered damage around WW II.
