Victory Column (Siegessaule), Berlin

(4.4/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
You can't help but notice the gigantic statue of the Roman goddess Victoria crowning the top of Victory Column (Siegessaule). It weighs 31 metric tons (34 tons) and is 67 m (220 ft) tall. Designed in 1864 to commemorate Prussia's military triumphs, the statue was not finished until 1873. Intended to honor victory in the German-Danish war, its completion ended up coming closer to Prussia's defeat of France. You're allowed to climb to the top of the tower, but the statue the locals call Golden Lizzy will still be above you. The ascent is strenuous and not recommended for those with mobility issues.

  • Very nice choice. Combined with a stroll in the Park next door. It has not so far next to but worth it. Imposing monument.

  • Wow great value,spend three euro and climb to the top for great views down to the Brandenburg gate and all around the city. It really is a focal point in the city and the little museum is most informa...  more »
  • The Victory Column is located in a big open place with a big roundabout surrounded by a lot of beautiful trees. From the place it is possible to go right to Brandenburger Tor.

  • This was the first location I visited in Berlin, and I must admit it was definitely worth it. The tickets were 10 Euros and the views were priceless. If you don't like stairs, this may not be the place for you as you got up 2 flights of stairs before you get to the top, but the views are well worth it. You can see the city in 360 and take great photos. It's a must see!
  • One of the best views of Berlin in the middle of the biggest park, just 3€ to get in, but I've seen some people who didn't make the whole stairs up.
  • Good monument, slightly difficult to reach, and have to pay to climb, but worth a visit
  • A lovely way to view Berlin's skyline. Not for those with a fear of heights! 😊
  • I enjoyed the way you have to get there, the statue is really cool to look at but you have to pay to go to the top, although it isn't expensive.
