very interesting memorial situated in the centre of the city. There's a museum that tells you the history of the memorial and about other attractions near by. There're are over 200 steps to the top with great views of the city.

A few steps up (286 exactly) and you can feel like winning yourself. The stairs keep coming thinner and thinner and it seems to go on forever. What an experience!

that place is amazing, the view is great, but we had to go up hundreds of stairs and it was very exhausting. however, the view is worth it.

3 euros for a small museum and tiring climb to the top. Completely worth it. You could see most pther monuments from the top as well. Wrap up warm!!

we sort of just stumbled across the column, and were dazzled by it. So decided to have a closer look. It was €3 each to go in. There was a bit of a naff exhibition at the bottom, but we were interested in climbing up there. There are an awful lot of steps so not recommended for anyone with mobility... More

Visited with one friend. Lovely walk through Tiergarten to Siegessaule is much nicer than the direct route. There is a small museum around the base which i found quite interesting. The climb to the top is quite arduous but well worth it for the superb views of the city.

I think this is one that would appeal to those are really do love their monuments. We are reasonably interested we go abroad to see places like this but in all honesty I tend to find I only spend 10 to 20 minutes there. It is great for a few photos and then we move onto the next.

The exposition is well-intended but to be honest it's the panorama on top that is actually the attraction. It's a great way to see the city from above without paying a huge amount of money.

Lovely views from the top of the tower, they have tried to make a little museum at the bottom, which isn't really worth it, but nevermind. There is some info on the tower which was interesting, but the rest of the museum was just about other statues around the world. We got a little bike taxi from the Nuremburg Gate... More

Visited the Siegessaule as part of a stop on a Berlin city hop on, hop off bus tour. I had seen the column from the Brandenburg Gate and so wanted to see it up close. As it's in the centre of a roundabout you can get to it safely by using the underpasses. Once underneath the column you realise just... More
