Located a bit far from central Berlin, this monument is very beautiful and it's worth a trip to spend a few minutes there. Many people go up the stairs to enjoy a nice view.
Well worth seeing. I really wanted to see it after seeing it in Wim Wenders movie wings of Desire as being a place where angels congregate. (also in u2's Stay (faraway so close video))
We did the walk all the way up the stairs, but still it's very crowded on the top, and you can barely walk around, during the most busiest hours in the day. The gallery on the ground floor we did not spend many minutes looking at. Other than that, you get a good view from the top.
I wasn't one of the many who've climbed up the column but I was walking through Tiergarten which was a great walk when I came across the monument for the first time.
