Here´s another online treasure trove full of images of #Berlin´s best known historical site, #BrandenburgGate.

The project is part of the Open Educational Resources platform whose aim it is to provide all history pupils, students and fans with interesting learning materials.

You would have to be made of more stone that the Gate itself not to develop a life-long passion for history after browsing this particular collection:-)

To browse the collection, please click the image below – it is the oldest existing photo of Brandenburg Gate, made by Leopold Ahrendts in 1855.

    Iconic, what else can one say? Berlin without the “Gate” would be like the sky without the sun.
