Berlin Victory Column is a mark of German history and represents the victory of the Prussian in the German- Danish war.

All in all, it represents around three victories. One being the victory of the Prussians in the German-Danish was which took place in the year 1864. Later, the victory of Germans over Austria in the year 1866 was also included. Lastly, the victory of Prussians again over France in the year 1870-71 was put here in the column.

Entry is relatively cheap (3.50€) and the view is great, especially to see the Western side of Berlin. The museum underneath the column is also surprisingly diverse and interesting. The platform upstairs may be a bit small on busy days
A must for anyone traveling to Berlin. Very small spiral staircase (not recommended for elderly people) leads up to the most amazing views of Western Berlin. Museum below also worth a visit. David Bowie performed a concert here after the wall came down I believe
Great historical site in Berlin not to be missed. Spectacular views. You can see and feel the bullet holes in the marble from WWII during the taking of Berlin. Museum inside the base too. Well worth the nominal cost of entry, not to be missed if you are visiting Berlin. €3 admission fee for adults.
Its a nice place to visit if you are passing through beautiful Tiergarten. Definitely worth the extra exercise ;) and the small 3 euro entrance. What is worth to know is that there is an unexpected interesting exhibition over German war and world monuments.
Just a couple of euros gives you access to the top of the column. Be prepared for a long spiral staircase that takes you to two viewing platforms- one at the midway point and another at the top. The 360-degree view is incredible! Makes you realize the beauty of that part of the city, which is a balanced blend of lush vegetation and manmade structures. The bottom of the column is a miniature museum with small replicas of famous sites and information about the history of the column, as well as parts of Berlin. Only con is the long distance from the city. We walked from the Brandenburg Gate since the roads were completely clear during the labor day festivities. Taking the taxi is probably the most convenient way to get here.
