A good well preserved iconic Berlin attraction, you need to be resonably fit to walk to the top of the tower but well worth the climb, take a map so you can see what you're looking at.

Great place to go and see, even up close you can see the bullets in it from old times. Not that worth to pay to go upstairs, as it would only be for a selfie or so. I went in November, so probably in summer is going to be nicer and maybe worth to pay. Great place must see

Victory column is a very important monument for the German people so much so they have chosen this place to gather at new years eve to welcome in the new year and thousands of people attend but you should do your homework on this monument as its a very interesting history

I recommend visiting Victory Column, even if you decide not to go upstairs because it is a beautiful walk from Brandenburger Tor. Although, if you decide to go up, spare some time, because the platform up there does not support too many people, sometimes you need to wait for people to get tired of the view. Remember to up on...

It is beautiful. The fact that it's surrounded by parks and trees gives a unique view. It actually resembles the "Angel de la Independencia" in Mexico City.

We had visited the TV tower the day before but due to size of queue and price we decided not to venture up. For €3 and some legwork (about 300 steps) we had a great view

Worths a visit while in Berlin. Entrance is 3€ and you will have a lot of stairs to climb! The view from the top is terrific tough, so worths every single muscle pain :)

I quickly decided to view the top of the Victory Column as I was on my way back to the airport, lugging my 15kg backpack around. This is not the best way to visit the Victory Column, due to the amount of stairs! That said, the view is totally worth it, and the entrance cost was super cheap. The viewing... More

Little head up, it is a long walk up but it was enjoyable. It's worth it when you get up great view of the city and really cheap to get in too.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood. 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 theatres 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.
