The Victory Column in Berlin

The Victory Column in Berlin

In the middle of Tiergarten park you find this national monument showing the goddess of victory, Victoria.

In 1873, it was inaugurated in front of the Reichstag building as a national monument commemorating the victory over Denmark, France and Austria. Then the goddess had to move because she did not fit into the urban planning of the Nazis.
1938 she was moved to the Tiergarten. The square is a large transport hub and is also known as the "Big Star". The figurine is gold-plated and affectionately called "Gold Else" by the Berliners. The Column can be reached over several pedestrian tunnels. It's 285 steps to climb up to the viewing platform where you have a terrific view over the Tiergarten.
Just next to the Victory Column you find the wide Tiergarten Park, a perfect place to relax after climbing up the high column to reach Goddess of Victory. Or else take a little walk and you get to the Schloss Bellevue, the residence of the German President. It´s very close by.
The Victory Column is one of Berlin's top 10 attractions.
