Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) is an important landmark to both Berlin and Germany. The gate symbolizes yesterday’s divisions and present-day reunification. On 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell, and a year later on 3 October 1990, West and East Germany reunited to become a single Germany. The Day of German Unity is celebrated every year in Germany on 3 October.
2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall, and 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Germany.
