Neustädter Tor in Breite Strasse was the prestigious eye-catcher when looking down the avenue to the west from the Stadtschloss or the Lustgarten. The gate’s predecessor structure was built in the course of the first city expansion in 1722. King Frederick II had the gate rebuilt by his master builder Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff as part of the prestigious redesign of the royal residence in 1752. The gate now stood further out of town at the junction of Schopenhauerstrasse and Breite Strasse.
