I hadn't realized on first trip that it is possible to go inside the column, so pleased to find that yes you can, and yes, it is worthwhile. Not out of this world, but good investment in time and Euros! Plus nice walk from Brandenburg Gate.

When i learned that Hitler actually moved the original column from the original place and made it taller, I understand what this monument means for german history.

Visited the victory column last week on a day where the Sun shone all day and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Quite a walk from anywhere to get too. Tiergarten station or hensaplatz would be closest. There are near 300 spiral steps to the top which do tire you out. Space at the top is limited but the... More

Very impressive statue and column that is visible from multiple points of Berlin. It is in the middle of a big park which I believe that during spring/summer would be a great place to hang out.

You are able to climb up to the top of this column, and it is a great way to see the Tiergarten and city. Views are amazing!

Wow great value,spend three euro and climb to the top for great views down to the Brandenburg gate and all around the city. It really is a focal point in the city and the little museum is most informative. A must in this city.

The Victory Column is located in a big open place with a big roundabout surrounded by a lot of beautiful trees. From the place it is possible to go right to Brandenburger Tor.

Well I was certainly blessed with a stunning day of weather yesterday. Makes all the difference to how things are perceived. Not very interested in the history behind this but it's certainly very pretty and cool to look at. Definitely recommend paying the 3 euro to climb to the top . The view is sensational! And if you manage to... More

Located in the center of the roundabout, this is a picturesque figure, adorned with gold plated ship cannons on tge large column. The victory Angel is also adorned in Gold plate making it shine so bright on a sunny day. Cross the Pedestrian walkway and you can enter the tower and go to the top, look over towerds the Brandenburg... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
