The victory column was built in 1873 to celebrate Prussia's victory in the Franco-German War. It was moved to its present location in the Tiergarten in 1938. You can go to the top via 270 steps to see great views of Berlin.

recommended to walk from the gate to here to see it slowly getting bigger. there is an underground path for crossing to the column circle also...so don't cross on the street

The victory column stands tall amidst traffic, it is beautiful and looks amazing at night. 1 time visit, clicking pictures, spending a few minutes here is Ok, as it lies a bit away from the centre of the city.

From the Reichstag building we walked all the way here! It's quite a way you'll think it's near since you can see it at a distance but no. But nonetheless, if its not to hot just walk so that you can experience Berlin more.

I decided it was too much effort to climb. But I also thought it looked good from ground level, and the best photos are from the tree lined avenues that lead to it. Very impressive monument. One of so many in this city.

From afar in the gardens, the imposing presence of this symbolic monument was hard to miss. Visible from almost every possible side, the column was the dominant structure in the entire vicinity and even passing along in vehicles you are impressed by the looks of...More

This is one of the largest monuments in Berlin. It takes a bit of a walk or ride to get to it, since it's in the middle of the massive Tiergarten park. However, it's very impressive, and a nice reminder of the older history of...More

My wife and I climbed up the more than 800 steps to the top of this monument, which was used to film part of the movie So close, faraway.

A true historic monument this stunning site has survived two world wars. It's historic architecture is filled with German national pride. It's centered in the middle of the Tiergarten and close to all major historic sites. Enjoy.

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
