Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” – US President Ronald Reagan Brandenburg Gate, June 12 1987.

It was two years later that the wall went down. The Brandenburg Gate was build in the 1800’s, and has often a site for major historical events, including the above-mentioned speech. During the cold war it remained closed as part of the Berlin wall, and now it symbolises the unification of Germany.
