at the center of the tiergarten - the victory column is a photo opportunity but be careful of the cars as it is the roundabout center...other statues also near by.

In the middle of the tiergarten the column is easy to get to but is around 2Km away from the Brandenburg gate. Good walking footware is a must as there is no tram available. it's only 3 euro's to go to the top but is...More

Wow! What can I say that all other reviews haven't covered. Spent 3 days in Berlin sightseeing with my 9 year old son. We wanted to visit some fun attractions that were not too intense on the brain. He loved this column. 5.50 euros for...More

I’ve never been up the Victory Column and I was at a loose end on a Friday afternoon and thought, “let’s do this”. The best €3 I have spent. Amazing views from both levels and a nice way to see Berlin. A few steps to...More

This is an historic spot in the middle of the Tiergarten with a traffic circle around it. Your taxi driver will drive you past.

We saw it from Brandenburg Gate and wondered what it was so we set off to check it out. Walked via Tiergarten, Bellevue Schloss and the Bismarck memorial. A very good walk. It's certainly a centre piece on the roundabout off Strasse 17 Juni. Access...More

Perfectly in line with the Brandenburg Gate lies this column. It's a stunning piece of history that was previously located outside the Reichstag building. How they moved it is beyond me. I wouldn't pay to climb it unless you're willing to climb over 200 narrow...More

Cheapest and one of the best attractions in Berlin. Talk a walk down from the Brandenburg Gate past the Tier Garten. Then pay 2.50 euro to go right to the top. Amazing value.

Stunning views from the top. Cheap entry with a small museum/history of the Victory Column as you enter. The climb isn’t as bad as I thought it’d be, there’s small rest stops on the way up and it’s absolutely worth it for the incredible views...More

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

Half an hour at the most, unless you wander through the parkland and get distracted. Watch out for girls in the area trying to get signatures and "donations" for a youth centre - it's a scam.
