The Siegessäule -Berlin Victory Column- was originally designed by Heinrich Stark to commemorate the 1864’s victory of Prussia over Denmark. By 1873, when it was inaugurated, Prussia had also defeated France and Austria in the unification wars, which inspired the addition of an 8-meters-high brass sculpture of Victoria.

Originally constructed on Platz der Republik, in front of the Reichstag, the Victory Column was moved to the Tiergarten’s Großer Stern crossroads in 1938-39. The relocation prevented major damage during WWII, though some restoring of the “Goldelse” -as Berliners call this statue- was needed in 1980.

To access the Siegessäule, pedestrians can go through four tunnels, built in 1941 to avoid the heavy traffic. A viewing platform can be reached after climbing 285 steps for a small fee. Visitors can go up almost to the top of the column and get spectacular views over the Tiergarten.
