Four O'Clock Factoid: 'Tear Down This Wall'

Four O'Clock Factoid is a daily feature on Track Twenty-Nine helping to get you through the workday with a bit of useless knowledge.

On December 22, 1989 the Brandenburg Gate reopened. For just under 3 decades, the famous landmark had been located within the death strip within the Berlin Wall. Today the gate continues to be a symbol of the city of Berlin and of German reunification.

It's also the sight of one of Berlin's three new U-Bahn stations.
