Gate Quadriga close up by night

The Quadriga consists of a goddess of victory riding a chariot and four horses. It stands on top of the Brandenburg Gate. During the Nazi period the cross was replaced with the Nazi symbol (which I can't mention or this page will be blocked!).

Die Quadriga is eine Siegesgöttin mit Viergespann. Sie steht auf dem Brandenburger Tor. Während der Nazizeit wurde das Kreuz mit dem Kreuz der Nazis ersetzt (das ich nicht erwähnen darf, sonst wird diese Seite blockiert!)
