Tannhäuser (pronounced TANN-hoiz-er) was a German poet and Minnesänger whose poetry dates from 1245 to 1265 A.D. Outside his poetry, practically nothing is known of the historical Tannhäuser. In the 1400s, legend sprung up that he discovered the underground home of the goddess Venus, then sought atonement from the Pope for having worshiped her. Creator/RichardWagner's three-act opera ''[[Theatre/{{Tannhaeuser}} Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg]]'' popularized this legend in the modern era.

* In ''Film/{{Soldier}}'', Creator/KurtRussell's character is a veteran of the Battle of Tannhauser Gate. This and several other details were meant to tie ''Soldier'' into the same [[TheVerse 'verse]] as ''Blade Runner''. (The screenwriter, Creator/DavidWebbPeoples, was a co-writer of ''Blade Runner''.)

Apparently, it is a physical barrier or a jump gate as big as a planet.

* A rather more subtle instance, but ''MortalEngines'', in its UsedFuture setting, has a mountain range the divides Central and East Asia called the Tannhäuser Mountains. The only break in the mountains is an armoured wall-fortress of Batmunkh Gompa. The climactic battles of the book, and the trigger for most of the political events of the rest of the series, take place on or around this metaphorical 'gate'.
