The victory column was built in 1873 to celebrate Prussia's victory in the Franco-German War. It was moved to its present location in the Tiergarten in 1938. You can go to the top via 270 steps to see great views of Berlin.

The column is an imposing monument central to a number of avenues. It has an observation deck which you access via a staircase. There are nearly 300 steps to reach it so take your time. The column itself is a well photographed attraction in Berlin...More

240 steps to get to the top but well worth the effort. Fantastic views and great architecture and mosaics. Takes about fifteen mins to walk from Bradenburg Gate abd reichstag building.

Sadly the light was going as we got here, beautifully restored monument, bearing the bullet holes and scars of Berlin's history. As the light was fading we didn't climb inside but could still appreciate the fabulous Murals and Restored Statue at the top. Accesible via...More

Definetly the best overview of the city I got in Berlin, even though it wasn't the highest. Especially beautiful in late autumn with its explosion of colours. Well worth climbing the steps!

Beautiful monument in the centre of Tiergarten. Walking around, I was struck by the bullet holes in the stone from WW2. Very poinient space worth visiting.

We walked here and it was worth it. Right across from the side of the Brandenburger gate. Great views of Berlin.

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
