Brandenburg Gate- In the heart of the town
The seven year’s war was won in 1770. A triumphal arch was to express the joy over this: the Brandenburg Gate was erected in the centre of Potsdam and is today the crowning start of the axis from Luisenplatz (a square in close proximity to Sanssouci Park) to Brandenburger Straße, Potsdam’s pedestrian precinct and up to St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s Church. The baroque houses of Brandenburger Straße date back to the 18th century. Quite a lot has been done in the side streets in recent years. Most of the houses have been newly renovated and invite you to go for a stroll.
