The victory column has some fantastic history! You can cross under the large traffic circle and access the column. There are steps to the top of the column which offers great views over Tiergarten towards the Riechstag, Potsdamer Platz, etc. The top ledge is quite...More

A few hundred steps is all that separates you from a spectacular 360 degree view of the beautiful city of Berlin. The climb is well worth it and you can walk around the whole thing to see in every direction. My kids (8, 10) did...More

When the weather is good, you should definitely go and take a photo from the top. Take Bus 100, then you can get off exactly in front of Siegessaule.

After noticing this column from the taxi on our way to the hotel I just knew I will have to get closer. Beautiful. After a walk through the Tiergarten it was lovely to see it standing at the end of the street

Very nice column in the middle. Take the tunnel under the street, and make sure you go all the way up. It is really worth it!!

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
