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.

A beautiful tall column, on top of which is a very beautiful sculpture of the goddess Victoria (Roman mythology, the goddess of victory). In the pedestal is the entrance inside, through which you can climb to the balcony on this pedestal. And it's a paid. On the balcony you can see a very beautiful fresco. And you can go further to the very top, where the observation deck is located. Climbing by the stairs, so it can tire, but a couple of times you can meet a benches. A beautiful view of the city opens from this platform, but it is mainly visible at the edges, since the column is in the very center of the park. However, I also really liked the view of the whole park.
Highly recommended just to see the monument itself. Option to go up the column from where the city stretches to the horizon (3 EUR). You reach the inside of the roundabout by entering one of four concrete buildings and walk the tunnels. Personally I find this to be a very impressive and awe inspiring monument, and would revisit any time I'm in the city. Across the road in three directions there are statues of historical individuals.
