Victory Column (Siegessäule)
The Victory Column, or Siegessäule in German, is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Berlin. Inaugurated on september of 1873, it was relocated by the Nazis from its original site, in front of the Reichstag, to the present location in a large intersection on the city axis that leads from the former Berliner Stadtschloss (Berlin City Palace) through the Brandenburg Gate to the western parts of the city.
At the top there is a beautiful view of the Tiergarten, but it is necessary to walk up a steep spiral staircase of 285 steps. There is a small fee to enter inside the monument.
