Victory Column (Siegessaule), Berlin

4.4
#26 of 1,522 in Things to do in Berlin
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.

  • The winning column is worth seeing at any time and season, unfortunately the more than 280 levels for fuss or bone sick are something bad to cope with therefore again only seen from below

  • Very cool. We stumbled upon this while walking along the park and were very happy with the experience. It cost very little to go up but the views were excellent. There's a tunnel to go under the roundabout to the column, follow the signs. Be prepared for many stairs up the column but it's definitely worth it!
  • a must see in Berlin! amazing 360 view of Berlin from the top side (you need to make it to the top using a small spiral staircase) there’s also a small museum on the ground floor. Highly recommended!
