    Did you see Wim Wenders' astonishing film 'Wings of Desire'? If so, Berlin's Victory Column (erected after one of the many times that the German army pummeled France into submission) might look familiar.

    The Siegessaule (or Triumphal...

    by zizquark Written Aug 25, 2002

    The Siegessaule (or Triumphal Column) in the centre of the Tiergarten was built to commemorate Prussian victory in the Prusso-Danish war of 1864. It originally stood in front of the Reichstag, but was moved to its present location in 1938 by the Nazi government.

    The golden figure at the top of the column, known as the 'Goldelse' was added following victories in Austria (1866) and France (1871)

    The Victory Column is an easy way to have an overview at Berlin. In contradiction with the TV-tower at Alexander Platz you pay here not very much to climb it; about 1,50/2,00 EUR per person.

    This is a tower of a very important woman. You can go underground instead of crossing the road in order to get to it.

    Think its silly, but in fact, many likes to write down in the 'giant historical canvas' here. From just a name and signature, short words, and some humorous pic.

    You did too?

    This monument was in front of the Reichstag but was moved during the National Socialist era. Ironically, it would probably not exist now, if it had not been moved.

    It'll keep you fit walking up here. I went up in the winter and it gives very good views but, be prepared for the wind. In the summer it can get a little claustrophobic on the stairs.
