Charlottenburger Tor with Charlottenburger Brücke is a Neo-Baroque building in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin. It was erected in 1907 at the behest of the then independent City of Charlottenburg, it was meant as a counterpart to Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate.
The Gates flank the western approach to the main thoroughfare Straße des 17. Juni (former Charlottenburger Chaussee) through the Großer Tiergarten park, which passes either sided of the Berlin Victory Column in the centre, on through Brandenburg Gate to the central Mitte district, where it continues as the Unter Den Linden boulevard.
By 1970, the gate and its surrounds had been restored in their 1930s position, except for the candelabra. A second renovation was begun in 2004. Finally, the two candelabra were rebuilt in 2009.
