The question in my mind is " Why this is in American Sector"

This Soviet War monument is an after-war monument, dedicated only in bravery of the Red Army warriors who conquered the capital city of the 3rd Reich. It's in American Sector and... read more

Came here on Aug. 20/16 when my tour group came into Berlin. Grounds are nature friendly, beautiful and well maintained. Take a long walk to the otherside of the grounds where the Soviet Soldier is holding the little girl and stomping on the nazi symbol, meaning the defeat of the nazi rule. There are only about 25-30 steps at most... More

Soviet soldiers were on the side of the Allies during WW2. This monument honors those soldiers ... notice the hand of the soldier on the top of the monument is extended to protect the German citizenry. Pretty gardens behind the monument. Back of the pillars have names and ranks of some of the fallen soldiers from the Battle of Berlin,

This Soviet War monument is an after-war monument, dedicated only in bravery of the Red Army warriors who conquered the capital city of the 3rd Reich. It's in American Sector and it's confusing but I think that it was built right after the Soviet Occupation of Berlin, and it preserved by the Americans. The fact is that these tanks that... More

The biggest soviet memorial and cemetery outside of Russia. After your first five minutes you will be fascinated or disgusted. It's huge indeed, but it's also built in this old soviet kind of style - without any emotion.

Humbling and amazing memorial to the fallen Soviet soldiers. The details were awesome and lots of text detailing each of the monuments. It was a lovely walk towards the statue with it's beautiful interior. Well worth a visit.

This memorial is located by the Straße des 17. Juni, which leads from the Brandenburger Tor to the Siegessäule. It's very grand and impressive, a fitting tribute to the Soviet soldiers who lost their lives in WWII. Until the end of the DDR it was guarded by honor guards - one time one of them was even attacked and shot... More

The Soviet memorial in what was the British Sector of West Berlin. A couple of 120mm artillery pieces too as part of the memorial to the Soviet fallen taking this part of Berlin in '45.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. 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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
