Description
The Victory Column, or the Siegessäule, is a monument that was built in Berlin, Germany to celebrate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War, and by the time that it was inaugurated in the ... Read more
year of 1893, Prussia had already defeated 2 more enemies, Austria and France, giving the statue much more purpose than it had when first built. It is one of the most notable land marks in Berlin, and anyone that will be visiting Germany should make a point in seeing it for its historical and cultural meaning.

Well worth the 3€ (2.50 with student ID) to go to the top. Cheapest views over Berlin.

Two tunnels go under the road to reach the central island.

If you take one of the bus tours they’ll take you right up to this monument for great pictures. The area is usually fairly busy, but it’s a historic spot you definitely should check out.

This monument is the Victory Column in the midst of Berlin's park Tiergarten commemorating Prussia's victory over France in 1871. It is very busy but the views are worth it.

High Prussian architectural braggadacios in the heart of Berlin. This was where Polish troops hoisted their national colours signifying the end of the Battle of Berlin in 1945. The Kaisers would doubtless be turning in their imperial graves given some of the more contemporary uses of the column in advertising and logos for special interest groups.

you can get inside the Siegessäule and ascend stairs to the height of below the "Goldelse". From this point you have a beautiful view to the Brandenburg Gate.

Quite far from the city center, and although it was very impressive, there was nothing nearby it. Just watch it from a moderate distance by the Brandenburg gate and you'll also see it well enough.
