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.

This is a monument to Prussian victories over Denmark, Austria and France 1864 - 71, so is of historical interest

The Victory Column is situated in the center of the Tiergarten, so to get here on foot requires a bit of a walk. But the view of the Column from afar as well as the view from the top is excellent, not to mention the...More

A beautiful column and memorial. Worth taking the underground stairs to reach it. Didn't go climbing up because walking around in tight spirals to the top seemed pointless, as there are two towers in Berlin which take you to higher ground with an elevator.

I go here every time I go to Berlin. For those people who saw "Der Himmel über Berlin" movie (Wings of Desire) this is a must-do in Berlin!!!

Wander around the Tiergarten and if you have the energy do climb the tower for great history and views.

I think the long views of the column set it off at its best, especially as the sun is rising or setting.

Even though it's a little far by walk it is worth it. Its gigantic and beautiful. If you go to Berlin, go there too

Long way up, think I counted 298 steps but well worth the effort. The collage on the wall part way up and the views a brillient

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
