As you walk in Tiergarten on the main road, near the Brandenburg Gate you can't miss this memorial. It is huge and has 2 tanks (see pics), as well as army gunners (see pic). If you don't know any better you'd think this was the...More

We found this as we were walking from the Victory Tower towards the Brandenburg Gate. It is well worth a visit.

The Memorial is right in the massive Tiergarten. Had I not been walking through the park I would have definitely skipped it. Out of the dozens of memorials and museums I visited in Berlin - this could have been skipped.

It's nice to see if you are close to the Reichstag, it's not far away and it's free...It's also nice to walk in the park around.

We will never be soldiers but to see the size of the weapons they use and the destruction that they could cause you have to fear for the soldier- war is such a waste of life

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
