This memorial is a short walk along the avenue, directly opposite the back of the Brandenburg gate, and is worth a visit if you have an interest in ll world history. It brings into sharp focus, just how many Russian soldiers were lost in the battle for Berlin. Two T34 tanks and two field guns at the entrance may be... More

Indeed, this monument is impressive and pretty close from the Brandebourg gate. It's about one or two minutes walking in the direction of the victory column.

I found this memorial to the Red Army's sacrifice against the Germans to be very compelling. My wife and I saw it as part of Insider Tours' Third Reich tour (recommended). As our guide said, "Hollywood and the West's history books like to focus their own achievements but really, it was these guys [pointing with his thumb behind him at... More

Located in Treptower Park, the Soviet War Memorial honors the more than 80,000 Soviet soldiers lost in the Battle of Berlin to defeat the Nazis. Very impressive soviet era memorial flanked by 2 tanks.

Excellent memorial to the fallen Russian soldiers (approx 2500). The memorial is very imposing and puts into perspective why you are there. As with the rest of Tiergarten, there is a problem with pickpockets asking tourists "to sign" a piece of paper. Do NOT do this - whilst you are signing, you will be distracted so one of the others...

The memorial is quite far away from most of Berlin tourist attractions. I would recommend to get there using public transportation. If you are passionate about the Second World War then this is place to visit, SInce it is a grave for 7000 people, act solemnly,

My Wife and visited the Soviet War Memorial located in Treptower Park on a Sunday morning. I have to admit we visited this memorial at my instigation, my Wife quite rightly finds such monuments to be places of deep sorrow.

It is an emotional place for those whose families were touched by the WW2. Must see to embrace the history of Berlin fully.

This high-profile memorial on the edge of the Tiergarten park in central Berlin serves as a reminder to the losses incurred by the Russians in taking Berlin at the end of the Second World War. This memorial was protected with barbed wire and sentries by the British armed forces during the time of the Cold War division of Berlin to... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
