We visited this victory column on a private bike tour of Berlin. There were a lot of People but it was not crowded. There are stairs to the top a good workout most People will break a sweat. The view is awesome.

You can walk to the Victory column through Großer Tiergarten park, or get a bus, but I think the walk through the park is much better. You can walk from Reichstag Building or the Jewish memorial. When you get there you can take photographs of the outside there are scenes of war around the tower in stone. Then you have... More

With a fee of only €3 I would say this is a must go to, if you're in shape to take the stairs. It's a bit of a workout, I counted 281 steps on the way down, when I had the energy for it. The way to the top is a workout but the view is amazing and well worth... More

I walked from Brandenburg Gate which is not for everyone as it is the longest straight walk you will take in the city. Got the bus back. Lol. Very well designed with 4 entrance tunnels at each corner that go under the roundabout to get closer and go up into it, to see beautiful designed architecture and artwork with a... More

Very beautiful to see in person. You can access this from the corner of the street and there are tunnels to give you access there. To view the property is free, but you have to pay to go up inside of it to the top.

It is a huge monument. Good to see it after a long walk through the Tiergarten. Nice to visit it if there is enough time otherwise better to spend the time in other attractions.

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.
