The LEGO Architecture Brandenburg Gate is a 363-piece miniature reproduction of one of Europe and indeed the world’s most iconic buildings.

As the scene of so many historic moments and a symbol of the division and subsequent reunification of Germany the Brandenburg Gate is a worthy part of the Landmark series in the LEGO Architecture range.

Other Landmarks featured in the collection include: the Eiffel Tower*, Big Ben*, The White House* and the Flatiron Building*.

LEGO® Architecture inspires future architects, engineers and designers as well as architecture fans around the world using the LEGO brick as a medium for reproducing esteemed structures.

The Brandenburg Gate set was designed by US architect Adam Reed Tucker in collaboration with the LEGO design team.  When completed it measures 9cm tall by 22cm wide and 10cm deep.

As well as the 363 bricks and detailed assembly instructions, the box includes a brochure with facts about the Brandenburg Gate, the architect, Carl Gotthard Langhans and the gate’s design.

LEGO enthusiasts with a passion for Berlin might be amused to see the LEGO Berghain mock up that was doing the rounds in the summer, though unfortunately it isn’t in production (yet! – we can hope).

A simplified and smaller version of the Brandenburg Gate features in the LEGO Architecture Berlin Cityscape due for release on 1 January 2016.

Until then, if you’re looking for a present for a Berlin loving architect or LEGO fan (let’s be honest who isn’t) how about getting them the LEGO Architecture Brandenburg Gate*.
